Montgomery County Fire Rescue said the owners heard whimpering coming from the Norwood School and found the dog at the bottom of a 20-foot well, WUSA reported.

They called rescuers who worked to remove the 100-pound, 11-year-old dog, whose name was not released, WTOP reported.

Firefighters pumped air into the void and expanded the opening to fit a ladder then retrieved the dog.

The dog appeared happy and was wagging its tail after the rescue.
