Timmy the puppy was rescued after he fell down a well.

Here's your afternoon palate cleanser. Timmy, a six-week old, adorable puppy, was rescued by firefighters after he fell into an old well in the 5000 block of East Grand Avenue in Fresno, the Fresno Bee reports.

The puppy fell about 50 feet through an 8-inch-wide hole in an old pipe, but firefighters from Fresno's Station 15 were able to pull the puppy to safety by fashioning a rope into a harness and hooking the dog by his legs and torso.

The hole Timmy stumbled into has since been covered, and he has been reunited with his human, 12-year-old Teresa Holguin.
