In Angus, Scotland, the story of a little Cocker Spaniel’s heroic rescue has made its rounds on social media and caught the interest of many dog lovers. The Cocker Spaniel, named Jazz, went missing on the vast grounds of a historic estate.
Jazz’s owner, Karen da Rosa, headed to the Invermark Estate in Angus with her dog for a grouse shoot day. While out on the Angus moor, Jazz decided to venture out on his own. Karen is familiar with the grounds, but her dog was not.
The first search for her dog came up empty-handed. Now panicked, Karen asked the gamekeepers of Angus Glens Moorland Group for help locating her Cocker Spaniel. Head gamekeeper Garry MacLennan went out searching when he heard the small dog breathing. They soon realized the poor dog had fallen down a pipe on the moor.
The gamekeepers had to dig a hole to be able to access the pipe and rescue the dog. Another gamekeeper named Johnny Stevenson then stuck his head and upper body down through the hole to retrieve the Cocker Spaniel. Little Jazz was brought out of the pipe, very muddy, but otherwise unharmed.
Karen was so incredibly grateful to the gamekeepers for their help in saving her dog, and she now refers to them as the Invermark heroes. Karen thought her poor dog would be in shock and freezing, but he was quite the opposite. The dog seemed unaffected, and the mud probably kept him warm.
Gamekeeper Johnny Stevenson later admitted rescuing Jazz was one of the messiest jobs he’s had. He did feel thankful for finding the dog, as his owner thought she’d lost him forever because he was missing for so long. Stevenson said there is a pipe hole which leads to a long pipe located underground in a peat chamber. They had to dig six feet to find the pipe and eventually the dog. Check out the video below:
