Miracle Dog: Dalmation Rescued After Four Days in Storm Drain

After four days of searching and digging for their dog, a West Virginia family has found their buried dog alive.

In heroic efforts, the dogs owner, Larry Thompson, never gave up hope that his dog Alex would be rescued. Alex went missing Thursday, and after an initial search, Thompson heard noises from a nearby storm drain where he found Alex had fallen in.

After four days of digging, where most would have given up, a man in tears finally rescues his best friend.

He was rushed to the veterinarian on a stretcher to be checked out. The vet said that Alex is dehydrated, but he is doing well.

Thompson said: “I would have gone to any extent to get him out. It was the humane thing to do. I just couldn’t leave him in there to die, to suffocate. I’m just so glad we kept digging. Now all I have to do is clean up this mess I’ve made of my yard.”
Good luck Alex with your recovery! Our prayers are with you and your awesome "pawrents"!!
