Is she a miracle, or just one seriously lucky dog?

Two weeks ago Scott Jensen’s dogs Annie and Buddy went out for a run on the Jensen’s property in Cheney, Washington. A few hours later Buddy returned. Annie didn’t, and her tale of survival defies explanation. KXLY4’s McKay Allen reports.

    • I agree to be looking for another dog so soon is a bit disturbing. Both dogs should be microchipped. And with there so many dangers maybe a radio fencing would be a good idea.

      • Sandra and Kelley..why are you so quick to judge? You only saw a fraction of the story. Both dogs look healthy and clearly have owners who love them. Just be happy she was found..alive.

        • Sorry, I don’t buy it and agree with Sandra and Kelley. It is totally irresponsible for their owners to just assume their dogs would be okay allow them to roam free.

          Both dogs should be chipped, in fact in many states now, they require it along with dog licenses. Also a collar tag with their names and numbers is a must as most people move and don’t alert licensing services! The vet could have easily called them to tell them they found their injured dog a lot sooner than 3-4 days it took to call and find her themselves.

          Fencing is not an option in a lot of places. You just can’t assume that dogs won’t run off after other animals or just go looking around on their own, no matter how well trained they are.

  2. Poor baby, that must have hurt. And I don’t think it matters what “miracle” is a euphemism for, in this case it’s serious luck.

    • Fran…seriously who are you to judge? You only viewed a very small portion of the story. I imagine you are perfect, eh?

      • Kallie, It’s not wrong to think the owner is irresponsible for not having collars and tags on their dog. It’s an opinion. You seem to be judging people yourself. Pot meet kettle.

    • I had a cat who somehow got his own collar up into his mouth. He then hid because he was scared. By the time we found him, the skin at the corners of his mouth was so damaged he had to have it surgically removed. By the time he healed enough to eat normally, he had gone from a 30 pound cat to about an 8 pound cat. I am not a huge fan of collars.
