Dog Found Alive Inside Of Home Six Days After It Partially Collapsed In A Landslide

Published: January 14, 2022 at 07:33 PM Author: Penny Eims

A dog managed to survive what seemed to be unsurvivable in a partially collapsed home in Seattle’s Magnolia neighborhood. The black Labrador retriever, named Sammy, was presumed dead after her owner’s home was destroyed in a landslide on January 7.

But there was a glimmer of hope for Sammy’s family on January 13, when a neighbor reported hearing something that sounded like a dog coming from inside the damaged home, reports King 5 News. Seattle Fire was contacted for help.

Responding firefighters carefully accessed the interior of the unstable house and after a search, the three-year-old dog was found. Somehow Sammy had managed to survive on her own in the midst of the rubble.

Her family was overjoyed to see their dog and Sammy seemed to be equally happy to see her people, offering a gentle kiss to owner, Didi Fritts, who can be heard saying, “Oh my baby. My baby.”

Sammy’s survival is truly miraculous – the family’s other dog died when the landslide caused the house to collapse.

No comments? Well then, I will. Thank goodness Sammy was found and rejoined her family; what a horrific thing to have gone through for all those long days. Poor Sammy, and how awful that her partner died, may he/she be with the loved ones in heaven.
