In Ecorse, Michigan, a small dog who had been stranded for four days on the frozen Detroit River, was rescued on Saturday. The furry pooch renamed Miracle (aka Fonzi) miraculously survived the bitterly cold days and nights on the ice near John D. Dingell Park.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Miracle had been chased by coyotes, and people watching were so scared the coyotes would be able to capture the one-year-old pup. After the temperatures had dropped to single digits, animal advocates were unable to find anyone who would use their boat in the dangerous conditions. And on Saturday afternoon, as the cries for help from crowds became louder and louder and the situation became more desperate, Canadian boat owner Jude Meade of J&J Marine in Windson, Ontario used an airboat to rescue the fluffy pooch.
Had it not been for the photographs of the dog by professional photographer Tim Epperly and his talent and equipment able to keep track of the dog’s location, it may not have been a success story. And then there were the huge crowds who even brought a barbecue grill hoping the dog would be attracted to the smell of hot dogs and come closer. Indeed, it was all of the village coming together to help a small dog.
Miracle was rushed to the Woodhaven Animal Hospital where Dr. Lucretia Greear has been treating the pup, and since the time of his rescue, his owner’s identity has been unknown. Nevertheless, a flood of people calling the veterinary hospital have claimed ownership of the adorable pup, yet no one has produced any viable proof.
“Woodhaven Animal Hospital is providing care for Miracle. We are being overwhelmed with messages and calls regarding adoption. We are not involved with the adoption of Miracle or locating an owner only his medical care…”
