Dog That Was Trapped In The River For 4 Days Is Adopted By His Rescuer

A puppy that spent four days submerged in the Detroit River before being rescued, recovering from his wounds, and finding a permanent family next to the person who saved his life.

Apparently, a coyote pursued the tiny puppy named Miracle and left him stranded on the frozen riverbank. Fortunately, they were able to save him in time despite the challenging rescue attempt caused by the weather and unstable river ice.

The fluffy puppy was able to jump back onto the ice after having survived coyotes, eagles, freezing weather, and even falling into the water.

Many onlookers and rescuers saw what the puppy was going through, but none seemed to be able to aid because of the challenging circumstances in which it was discovered. Fortunately, a brave man who lives on the opposite side of the river risked his life to save the helpless dog. He was joined by his kid.

It’s interesting to note that the Detroit River, namely between the cities of Detroit, Michigan, and Windsor, Ontario, splits the boundary between the United States and Canada. The dog’s position was being watched on both sides of the river, and when he came closer to the Canadian side, Jude Mead and his son made the decision to take action.

Co-owners of the Windsor-based maritime building firm J&J Marine are the man and his son. Jude and his crew managed to cross the river using a hydrofoil made by the chemical manufacturer BASF Corp. despite the danger to their life.

The puppy was concealed on a little area of land that had developed in the river, but getting to it was extremely challenging due to the ice. Once they had a solid strategy in place, they were able to locate him, rescue him, and transport him to a veterinary facility.


Veterinarian Lucretia Greear of Woodhaven Animal Hospital explained to WXYZ:

They were able to physically reach the little island where he was and rescue him.

The dog had ice on his fur, as well as frostbite on his paw pads and scrotum, which was detected at the animal hospital. The major goal at that point was to stabilize him because he was also dehydrated and suffering from pancreatitis as a result of being trapped under the ice for four days.
