Meet Miracle, The Dog That Survived For Weeks In The Wreckage Left By Hurricane Dorian

The rescue efforts after a natural disaster can extend long beyond the disaster itself. Sometimes survivors can emerge long after many would think they’d been lost. One survivor dog is proving that it’s important to never give up hope.

A dog was recently found hiding under rubble after Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas. The pup is being called “Miracle” because of the miraculous survival skills that kept him alive for weeks.

On Friday, Big Dog Ranch Rescue received word that there was a dog that needed care. The Loxahatchee Groves, Florida-based animal rescue took in Miracle that day. He’s believed to have survived under an air conditioner in the town of Marsh Harbour on the Abaco Islands for over three weeks.

“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 said.

After the drone sensed Miracle, rescuers climbed through piles of debris in order to retrieve him. The team is currently using that same technology and special recovery teams to try to find and save other animals. Miracle was trapped with another dog that unfortunately did not survive, but the team is happy that they were able to save Miracle. “Hopefully, we can find his owners. If not, we’ll find him a wonderful home,” Simmons said.

Hurricane Dorian was a category 5 hurricane that struck the Bahamas in September.

The storm killed 50 people, and hundreds are still unaccounted for. Simmons encourages people to remember that the rescue efforts are still underway. There are likely animals still missing that are afraid of loud noises and need to be treated with care during rescue efforts.
