Many dog owners will understand the anguish if a pet goes missing.
But few will have gone to the lengths - or depths - one rescue mission in North Worcestershire went to to save a curious Cocker Spaniel.
When Dizzy, who is deaf, vanished during a walk, her owner Luke Flowers enlisted members of the local community to help the search.
She was eventually found 20ft underground down a rabbit hole.
But after three hours - and the help of a JCB digger - the pooch was finally free and reunited with her worried owner.
And the 'ruff' ordeal has not seemed to have dampened Dizzy's desire to keep on digging.
