    A dog has been rescued after spending more than nine days trapped under rubble left by the earthquake that struck central Italy, killing nearly 300 people and injuring thousands more,

    The golden retriever named Romeo was found today while his owners were trying to retrieve essential belongings from their damaged home in the town of Villa San Lorenza a Flavione just outside Amatrice, according to local newspaper Latina Quotidiano (the Latin Daily).

    The owners had not lost hope that the pup was alive and called out "Romeo! Romeo!" while on site, Latina Quotidiano reported.

    Amazingly, they were were met with barking, according to the paper.
