Video: Dog freed after being trapped under house for 2 days

A dog that had been missing for two days turned out to be right under its owner's nose. Well, more like under the house.

According to a post on the Humane Society of Pinellas Facebook page, Delilah Gagliardi had let her dog, Allie, into her back yard on Saturday. But the dog never came back.

On Monday afternoon, she was sitting in her living room and heard whining under her floorboards. Allie had found her way under the house through a small hole and was trapped.

Gagliardi called the Humane Society of Pinellas, frantic, and society workers Maddy Ferguson and Shelby Ross went out to the Clearwater home to help.

The dog made no sound until the family baby started to cry. Then Allie gave out a whimper. They tried reaching her by following her path under the house, then digging underneath the opposite corner.

But finally, onlookers dismantled the front porch, the post said, and Ferguson and Ross dug toward Allie while Allie dug toward them.

Finally, as the video above shows, a little head poked out and they were able to drag her into the open. And then there were licks and hugs all around.
