Miniature Dachshund Rescued After 2 Weeks Underground

Apr 25, 2015

Lucy is one lucky pooch.

The miniature dachshund has been rescued two weeks after accidentally digging herself underground in Derby, Kansas, and getting trapped underneath a concrete slab, the Wichita Eagle reports.

The dog, which was let out in the yard each day by owner Rebecca Felix and her husband, dug a hole in the ground and then turned and burrowed for 4 feet beneath a concrete slab supporting an air conditioning unit.

After two weeks of searching for the dog, the couple heard a quiet bark and called 911 to rescue her.

“It really is a miracle that God gave me back Lucy right before her birthday, and if she could talk, we’d be able to write a book about it,” Felix said of Lucy, who turned 4 years old hours after she was rescued.
