People Help a Dog – level 3

People Help a Dog – level 3

06-09-2016 15:00

A dog named Nikki got lost when she was searching for food in a canal in Peru’s rural area of San Martin.

She later emerged through a hole just big enough for her head to poke through. She was trapped, but people gave her water while they worked out a rescue plan. After residents dug a hole big enough for her to escape, she was finally free, and she walked away with no reported injuries.

Residents hope that Nikki may now find a comfortable home.

Difficult words: rural (countryside), emerge (move out of), poke (stick out), trapped (stuck, unable to move).
