People Help a Dog – level 1

25-05-2021 15:00

This news is about a dog. It is from Peru. It looks for food in a canal. It gets lost. It finds a hole. It wants to go through the hole. The hole is too small. It is big enough only for the dog’s head.

It puts its head through the hole. The head gets stuck. The dog cannot move. Its head is on one side and its body is on the other side.

People see the dog. They give it water. They make the hole bigger. The dog gets free. It is fine.

Difficult words: canal (an open tunnel for water), hole (some space), stuck (something which is stuck cannot move).

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