Some dogs, like Gracie, find themselves in perilous situations. Its owner discovered it between 2 rocks, in North Carolina (United States), unable to move. To save it, the intervention of professionals was necessary.
“ It was very scary because a rock above her could fall and crush her, ” Becky Rowe Smith said .
The female Australian Shepherd, driven by her curiosity, crawled inside a narrow slit about thirty centimeters wide, between 2 boulders. The animal tried to free itself on its own, to no avail. Only his head protruded, revealing his large blue eyes seeking comfort and help. It was Emmie , the other dog in the household, who found Gracie in this condition.
Their owner immediately called for help.
A life-saving operation that lasted several hours
They created an opening large enough through the rocks to take out Gracie , covered in mud but unharmed. The intervention lasted nearly 3 hours.
Becky Rowe Smith was relieved to be able to hug her four-legged friend again. She posted a message on Facebook to share her story and to thank the rescuers for their professionalism and determination.
