Toffee is a deaf Australian Shepherd puppy who is 7 weeks old. She may be deaf but she sure looks quite cute.
Karen Smith is Toffee’s foster and the recent events of how Toffee was rescued made Karen say that the whole thing was a miracle. After all, it took rescuers 31 hours to save the puppy after it fell down a deep hole – 50 feet deep.
Toffee was doing her usual silliness in Karen’s yard in Alabama. That was around 5 pm. Karen noticed that the puppy just seemingly vanished. The puppy fell down the rocky crevice and its width was quite small.
To get help, Karen called A New Leash On Life, a rescue group. The group rushed to where the puppy had fallen to help save the dog.
A lot of people came to help rescue the puppy. There were cave rescue crews, firefighters, plumbers, as well as tons of volunteers. They made a number of attempts to save the dog. One of those attempts was putting down a net. Toffee was able to get her two front paws on it but it didn’t help bring up the puppy.
The rescuers did all they could to help Toffee. They knew the puppy was getting hungry and thirsty so they gave her food and water. A camera was also lowered down so they could assess the situation.
Finally, they were able to bring the puppy up. To get the dog to get into the net, they tried to lure him with some food and so the puppy was able to get her entire body into the net and the rescuers pulled her up. The puppy was stuck in there for 31 long hours.
Now, Toffee is safe and Karen is amazed at how everybody seemed to pitch in to save Toffee.
