Miracle puppy rescued after a month trapped in rubble from Cyclone Dorian

Miracle puppy rescued after a month trapped in rubble from Cyclone Dorian”

Simmons's phone rang around 9:30 a.m. that day with a plea for help: Her volunteers had found an anemic dog - barely alive - and needed to fly him back to Florida immediately.

The 1-year-old dog, aptly named "Miracle" by his rescuers, was clinging to life having almost been crushed under broken glass, an air-conditioning unit and layers of debris and surviving more than four weeks with no food or clean water.

Other rescue initiatives will see the use of these drones to retrieve trapped and injured people following natural disasters.

Workers from Florida's Big Dog Ranch Rescue used a drone equipped with infrared heat-seeking technology to find the puppy pinned under an air conditioning unit on Great Abaco, the hardest hit of the Bahamian islands by the Category 5 hurricane last month.

If no one claims Miracle, Big Dog Ranch will work to find him a forever home. There was another dog that was also trapped alongside the pooch, but it was not as lucky.

The fact the dog was not crushed under the rubble and managed to survive for that long is probably why it got its name.

"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.

His care now includes antibiotics, gradual feeding and physical therapy to help him regain his muscle tone.

A team of volunteers rescued an emaciated dog that had been stranded for three weeks amid wreckage left behind in the wake of Hurricane Dorian.

He said: 'Miracle will be up for adoption following recovery, unless his owners claim him.

Scott said they were providing the pup with medical and emotional support, and were hopeful for a full recovery. So they named him "Miracle".
