Her owner, Ana Timmerman, realized she was missing very quickly. She turned frenetic and started to look for Luna all over the community. After a whole day of search, she heard barks, which came from beneath her own house. Right away she called for rescuers to come in her aide. The first ones to answer the call were the firefighters. Once they arrived at the house, they got to work inmediately. They tried unsuccessfully by different means to reach Luna. After many hours of hard work, the firefighters decided to contact the technical rescue team from South Metro Fire.
