Dog rescued after surviving nearly a month pinned under rubble from Hurricane Dorian

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/miracle-the-dog-rescued-bahamas-after-hurricane-dorian-surviving-nearly-a-month-pinned-under-rubble-air-conditioner/?ftag=CNM-00-10aag7e



A dog who survived Hurricane Dorian is being called a "miracle" in the Bahamas. The people who rescued the dog have named him Miracle because he survived underneath rubble for about a month.

Rescuers from Big Dog Ranch Rescue in Loxahatchee Groves in Palm Beach County say they have rescued over 100 dogs since the devastating storm him the Bahamas. They have used a drone to aid their recovery efforts and the technology was integral during this particular rescue.

The rescuers located the dog pinned underneath an air condition and building debris in Marsh Harbor. After comforting him with food, rescuers were able to pull him out of the debris.

The team rushed the pup to their ranch for lifesaving medical treatment. He was emaciated after not eating for nearly a month ó but he miraculously survived. So they named him "Miracle."

"What an incredible story that we were able to discover this dog alive after being trapped for so long," Big Dog Ranch Rescue Founder and President Lauree Simmons told CBS Miami. "We are using the latest technology for our recovery teams to locate these animals. In this case, drones played a key role."

Miracle is the 138th dog rescued by Big Dog Ranch Rescue in the Bahamas. The organization is working with the Humane Society on the island to clear shelter space for new dogs. Miracle arrived on Friday, and will stay until his family claims him.

If no one claims Miracle, Big Dog Ranch will work to find him a forever home. The rescue team encourages those who would like to help or adopt to visit BDRR.org for more information.

1. That dog will probably recover and be adopted by someone.

Then, it can be a good, happy dog again.

3. Poor baby! Hope the rest of his days are less traumatic than the past 30 + days.


May they help restore him to good health and reunite him with his family. If they canít return him to his former family, let us hope they can find a loving new family who will gladly give him a good life.

5. "Miracle" is indeed that.

Hope this poor boy finds a loving home.

From a Google search: "Big Dog Ranch Rescue is the largest cage-free, no-kill dog rescue in the United States." I'm going to send them a donation.

Thanks for posting this Bayard.

7. ABC also did a story on him last night.

They said the rescue group will first try to reunite him with is original family, and that he's already gained 4 lbs. and "doing well."
