Caesar then fell into the pit, which was about 15 feet deep and 3 feet wide, around 7 p.m. Tuesday. Mary was alerted by the barking of her other dog. Cesar answered and she heard that he was no longer in her yard. The Pasadena Search and Rescue team soon arrived on the scene.

Not only for the dog, but also for our rescuers, – said Augustin. The team connected a series of ropes and pulleys to lower one team member into the pit. It took a team member about 12 minutes to reach the dog, secure it in a harness and bring it back to the surface. After being pulled from the pit, Cesar appeared healthy and unharmed. He shed a heavy layer of construction dirt and dust and met his owner at the scene. Related video below: UPS driver rescues drowning dogs in backyard pool
