Dog rescued from barranco
This little dog has very special reason to thank the expertise and bravery of Tenerife firefighters.
The puppy got trapped in the brambles at the bottom of a ravine in Tacoronte and was unable to free itself.
Firemen from La Laguna managed to get down the barranco using a roped pulley system , reached the dog and untangled it from the branches.
The animal appeared to be unharmed and none the worse for its ordeal but it was still taken to a local vets for a check-up. It was hoped the dog had a microchip so it could be reunited with its owners.
