Here is an AMAZING pet story from Perezilicious reader, Sarah, who wrote:
I saw your story of the cat that jumped out of its owners window and
survived a fourteen story fall. I was impressed and happy to hear that the cat survived with only a broken leg. I wanted to share a similar story of my own. My brother and I adopted a dog In December and in March she had a horrible accident.
My dog, Pie, is very skiddish and while being walked my brother dropped her leash (the plastic retractable ones) and it scared her and she ran away. While he was at work I was out looking for Pie all day, luckily Pie had an identity chip in her and eventually we got a call from an emergency vet stating they had her.
After arriving at the Vets office, they informed me that a woman saw Pie and tried to help catch her and she got scared of them and ran onto a highway, jumped off the overpass and got hit by a car. The emergency vet thought that she had two broken legs, her front and back right paws. Pie could not walk after the accident she had to be carried everywhere, and she weighed well over 75 pounds.
After taking Pie to a specialist we found out she only had broken her front right paw and sprained her back leg. We were very lucky Pie survived her accident and I just wanted to share the story with you. Over a year later, Pie is still skiddish and afraid of cars but walks perfectly fine and is a very happy dog.
