In Sand Lake, Michigan reports about a dog desperately barking for days alerted Animal Control officers from the Kent County Animal Shelter to investigate the spot of an old grain elevator. One nearby resident had walked out to the area and believed a dog had been stuck under a silo.

According to the Kent County Animal Shelter, the officers arrived at the area where the dog had been heard  barking and were met by two concerned citizens who spotted the dog stranded in an old bunker style silo. The sides of the silo consisted of 10-feet smooth walls; there had been no way for the dog to climb or jump out.

With the help of kind hearted neighbors, a long rope was able to be looped around the dog, and he was quickly pulled out from the bottom of the silo to safety.

And now the story of this pup’s rescue gets even better.

Lost Paws, LLC was able to assist in locating a posting for a similar dog that had been missing from a neighboring town since January 8, 2021. They contacted the missing dogs owners and were able to confirm the rescued dog was in fact, Milo a Springer Spaniel, that had last been spotted in early February. There had been no sightings of him for nearly two weeks.
Milo and his owners were reunited in a highly emotional but happy reunion. Although Milo can’t tell us what happened to him and how he managed to survive, his story of survival is nothing short of miraculous.
“…we do know he survived frigid temps, snow storms, hunger and dehydration. He lost 33lbs and traveled nearly 20 miles over the past 43 days . What he nor his owners never lost was hope and hope is what finally reunited them.”
Many thanks to all involved in saving Milo and finding his family.
