Five-month-old Maggie was rescued from a 26-foot mine shaft in Montana.

Six members of a search and rescue team in Beaverhead County, Montana, saved a 5-month-old German Wirehaired Pointer who fell into a 26-foot mine shaft on Monday. Maggie’s owners, Chuck and Gale Robbins, were training the puppy and their other dog when the puppy fell into the hole. Maggie suffered minor facial cuts but was otherwise in “good shape” when she was rescued, Sheriff Franklin Kluesner said Wednesday. He urged caution for others, warning the incident was a “prime example of hazards that can be present on public lands.” — Read it at the Montana Standard
