On the evening of Friday, July 15, 2022, Yoyo went out for a walk alone. “I thought she was chasing squirrels, so I figured I could go to bed and she would come home whenever she wanted. But she didn’t, and we were very worried in the early morning,” Sarah said in an interview with the Athens Banner-Herald.
So the whole family went in search of Yoyo. A few hours later, Sarah’s husband found her. She was at the bottom of a deep well filled with water. “The protective coating of the abandoned well was damaged when an oak tree fell on it,” he said.

The rescuer really lifted Yoyo, which weighs at least 31 kilograms, towards the exit.

“I don’t know how she managed to swim for so long. The water was really deep. When I got to her, she immediately clung to me,” said the rescuer.
Shortly before 13:00, Yoyo was again among his own. She was immediately given oxygen and taken to the nearest veterinary clinic.

Fortunately, after 24 hours of observation, she was able to return home in great shape. Dean’s family warmly thanked the rescuers who did a wonderful job. Who was overwhelmed by Yoyo’s survival instinct.
