'Miracle dog' survives 14-story fall at Miami condo

Posted: Updated:
MIAMI (FOX 13) -

A little dog from South Florida is being called a miracle dog.

She fell 14 stories through a condo building while the owner was visiting a friend in South Florida.

Incredibly, the dog, Susie, fell through a pipe on the 16th floor – tumbling all the way down to the second floor.

Firefighters spent three hours trying to get her out.

They took her to an animal hospital, where doctors say amazingly she was hardly even hurt.

"The amazing thing is that her injuries are very minimal," Dr. Spencer Ratnoff said. "(She had some bruising of her liver, some lacerations, but no broken bones."

Susie's vet said she will make a full recover.

"It was a miracle because she's living now," her owner, Caralis said.
