Dog Is Saved in Italy - level 2

Dog Is Saved in Italy - level 2

10-11-2016 15:00

The rubble of Italy’s strongest earthquake in decades buried alive a dog. Thankfully, rescue workers saved him who were guided by their own dog.

They dug carefully to free the animal. Then they gave him water and asked for a veterinary doctor to be called.

After the big earthquake hit Italy on Sunday morning, the dog was trapped for around a day.

Fortunately, no one is believed to have died, but at least 15,000 people have been left homeless and countless buildings were destroyed.

Difficult words: rubble (parts of a destroyed building), decade (ten years), countless (too many to be counted).
