Dog Rescued After Falling Off 200-Foot Cliff
Michelle Simmons thought her dog had passed away after Gracie, a Labradoodle, fell off a cliff during a hiking trip. But during a memorial service for the dog held on the cliff, a hiker heard a familiar sound – a barking dog, coming from the bottom of the cliff.
The hikers called the Oregon Humane Society, who assembled a 10 person volunteer rescue team. After hiking to the cliff, a member was lowered down and found Gracie, scratched and bruised, but otherwise in good health.
Rene Pizzo, the leader of the Oregon Humane Society’s rescue group, says that Gracie was not on a leash. “We strongly urge dog owners to keep their pets on leash at all times in areas such as this,” she said. “Your dog’s leash can save your pet’s life.”#VetNetworkNewsBytes
