Dog in a canal – level 1

27-12-2023 15:00

This happens in Peru. A dog gets into the canal. It cannot get out. It is in danger. Luckily, there are police officers nearby. They help the dog.

One police officer gets undressed. He jumps into the water. He picks up the dog. He passes it to another officer. They save the dog. He is only a little shaken.

Difficult words: canal (a river which people build for boats), nearby (near, close, not far), shaken (shocked).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What happened to the dog in Peru and how was it rescued?
