Starving dog makes desperate jump from apartment

Jumping from third-story apartment in desperate attempt to find food

A starving dog left in an abandoned apartment for two months, jumped from a third-story window in a desperate attempt to find food. Amazingly the dog survived the fall and helped rescue a puppy still locked inside.

Abandoned by their owners in a New Bedford, MA apartment for nearly two months, emaciated Miracle made a courageous leap for help by diving out of a third story window. Incredibly at that exact moment, a police officer pulled to the curb outside the residence to stop a car. The officer looked up and saw the painfully thin dog jump.

 Miracle broke her hip and hind leg in the fall, but the officer was there to immediately help her.

A search  of  the apartment lead to a small malnourished puppy, now named Gracie, too weak to even stand.

Both dogs are receiving treatment at Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists. Surgeons successfully repaired Miracle’s broken hip and leg and she is on a special feeding program to help her gain weight. Gracie was in shock at the time of her rescue and is in intensive care. The staff said she is “active and alert.”

Hopefully both dogs will recover and be available for adoption in the future.
