Khalessi had a backstory that wouldn't seem out of place in the blood-soaked story lines of Game of Thrones. The year-and-a-half-old pit bull was discovered in an Orlando, Florida, backyard. She was emaciated and unable to walk.

Even more horrifically, the Orange County Animal Services officer discovered the dog had no nasal passage or upper jaw. The person who reported the dog said it had been in the yard for four days but didn't provide any further information about her history. Vets believe she may have been used as a bait dog for other fighting dogs.

Superdog might be a more appropriate name for this pointer mix.

The pup named Vedder – in honor of the Pearl Jam frontman – caused quite the stir in Medfield, Massachusetts, on Tuesday when he fell down a well at least 35 feet deep and suffered nothing but a few scratches.

Several area rescuers, including the Norfolk County Technical Rescue Team, responded to the call to help the male pooch, who fell into the well when he stepped on a rotted wooden cover, the Boston Globe reports.

A firefighter named Keith Darling was lowered by rope to get the dog out, while Vedder's owner Kemper Dorsey, @kdorsal on Instagram, filmed the rescue (watch it above).
