chaunceeFirefighters in Akron, Ohio went above and beyond this week to save a dog that had fallen into a ravine and broken two of its legs.

On Tuesday afternoon a woman called reporting that her 15-year-old dog Chauncee had been missing for over a day. Akron fire captain followed up on the call by talking with neighbors who reported that they heard Chauncee barking all night long in a nearby ravine.

Firefighters and Metroparks rangers spent two hours searching the area until they heard Chauncee barking for help. They found Chauncee covered in debris at the bottom of a creek bed. He was unable to walk and in obvious pain. Two firefighters put Chauncee on his shoulder and carried him to safety. Once safely out of the ravine Chauncee was taken to Sigler Animal Hospital where he was found to have two broken legs.
