Pooch Survives 15-story Fall in Florida High-Rise: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Florida woman`s dog is recovering Saturday after it plunged 15 stories down an air conditioning vent the night before.


The fact that Susie -- a 4-year-old Maltipoo -- survived in the first place is nothing short of  `a miracle,` according the emergency vet who treated her. Dr. Spencer L. Ratnoff said Susie suffered no internal bleeding or broken bones, another miracle, he said."


Cats escape death so many times that they are said to have nine lives, but it looks like this pooch may have more than one life himself.

Curiosity got the best of Susie and she entered an open closet, only to fall down an exhaust shaft. I think this dog thinks she`s a cat.

Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue pulled the mischievous pooch out of the vent by cutting holes above and below the second floor, the rescue took three hours. Kudos to the first responders for taking so much time to rescue an animal, they realize that every creature is a blessing.

Despite her harrowing ordeal, Susie is expected to make a complete recovery.
