After the border terrier was missing for days, family members took their doorbell and started ringing it down rabbit holes in nearby fields. Deep underground, Henry started barking in response.

AUDIE CORNISH, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Audie Cornish. Henry's owners describe their dog as an adventurous border terrier, which is why they weren't too surprised when one day he disappeared from their home in rural England. Problem was he didn't come back for days. They looked high and low without luck until inspiration hit. They took the doorbell from their house and started ringing it down rabbit holes in nearby fields. Sure enough, from deep underground, Henry started barking in response, saved by the Bell. It's MORNING EDITION.
