Dog saves people - level 2
People were not the only ones who helped victims of China’s recent earthquake. A five-and-a-half-year-old dog helped to find a few buried people.
The dog participated in 12 rescue operations, but this work was too hard. The dog was really tired afterwards and his paws hurt. The animal was sent to the vet’s, and it will rest at home for a few weeks.
Difficult words: victim (person who survived something bad), buried (to be trapped under something), participate (to take part in something), paw (an animal’s foot).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
"The man's best friend is a dog." Is that true in your country?
