A 7-week-old Australian Shepard puppy that fell into a crevice behind a home Thursday afternoon and was rescued just after midnight Saturday morning.
Huntsville Fire and Rescue crews were at the scene throughout Friday trying several different methods to try and save the puppy.
Crew members said their biggest concern was how long the deaf puppy, named Toffee, could survive.
Owners said Toffee wandered in the backyard around 5 o'clock Thursday when she fell into the hole.
They said the hole isn't large enough for a person to climb down.
Workers tried sending down a cage into the hole as well as sending down tarps to keep the puppy warm.
As of 10 p.m. on Friday they had been able to send food down in an attempt to lure her into a net, but that did not work.
People on scene told WAAY 31 they believe Toffee had fallen asleep and might not be awake again until morning.
But, the rescue attempts were soon succesful.
