Escape Artist Dog Gets Stranded on 2nd-Story Ledge

A dog was brave enough to break through a window screen and walk on a ledge, but he was too scared to turn around and hop back through the same window he escaped.

For a New Jersey Chow mix dog who escaped his 2nd-story apartment, his freedom went as far as the length of the apartment building’s 2nd-story ledge. The pet was spotted stranded on the ledge by neighbors, and they called local firefighters to come rescue the dog.

Even though the Chow mix was brave enough to break through the screen and walk on the ledge, he was too scared and unable to turn around, hop back through the same window he escaped, and get back home.

Firefighters used two ladders to reach the dog and safely bring him down to street level.
