A dog found buried in rubble is being called a miracle after somehow surviving for over three weeks without care. According to Big Dog Ranch, a Florida-based rescue group, the skeletal dog was trapped beneath a broken air-conditioner and other debris in Marsh Harbor, Bahamas – the place he was likely trapped since Hurricane Dorian devastated the area. The rescue agency writes:
He was buried, trapped in the rubble under a broken air-conditioner amid piles of debris that lay sad testament to the strength of the Category 5 hurricane that in September virtually destroyed Marsh Harbor… He is a true Miracle!
The dog, dubbed Miracle, was found with the help of a drone that was being used in the area – after being spotted, rescuers went to work to free him from the debris. Big Dog Ranch Rescue Founder and President Lauree Simmons, says the dog is alive but emaciated “What an incredible story that we were able to discover this dog alive after being trapped for so long. We are using the latest technology for our recovery teams to locate these animals. In this case drones played a key role.”
Another dog who was also trapped in the same area was not as fortunate as Miracle, who is described as “completely emaciated.”
If the dog’s true owner is not found, the rescue group will ensure that Miracle is placed with a loving new family.
