After a awful 2 months, a dog who has actually been abandoned hundreds of feet underground has finally been reunited with her family. Early in June, Abby, a 13-year-old elderly canine, disappeared from her Missouri, US, home, leaving her frightened owners to wonder if she had disappeared forever.
A sick pup was found on August 6 by a small group of cavers that were exploring the Berome Moore cave in Perry County. The pup was stuck 500 feet below the surface. They started a complicated rescue operation to get her out as quickly as they called the local fire department and members of the Cave Research Foundation.
One of the cavers, 66-year-old educator Rick Haley, saw Abby and said that she was “not healthy,” so he set out a duffel bag, opened it, and placed Abby inside with “her head hanging out.”

He explained: “This was to secure her and the rescuers as she will undoubtedly struggle” in a Facebook post.
Rick saw that Abby was underweight and frail but really did not appear to be injured, so they started planning just how to bring her to the surface.
Together with colleague cave diver Gerry Keene, both of whom have actually had specialized training in cave rescue, they squeezed and wriggled their way via narrow spaces to raise Abby.
She was totally compliant as we took her 500 feet to a very tight, uncomfortable steep ascent and handed her hand to hand upward to the surface.
The procedure took around an hr, during which time one more caver knocked on doors carrying a photo of the canine looking for her owner.
The Bonner family was “astonished” to learn Abby was still alive because they had actually reported her missing on June 9; therefore, she might have been buried alive for close to 2 months.
The cherished canine was ” happy to get out” in spite of being a little shook up and is now going back to her former self.
If all 30 of those cavers had existed, you would have found 30 people assisting this rescue, according to Rick, who happened to be one of the only persons on the surface when the rescue was necessary. He claimed that while the specific situations of how Abby got so far inside the cavern remain unidentified, it is possible that she fell under an aperture when following a tiny pet and sank further due to the floods brought on by the severe rains.
Since she’s back in capable hands, that’s all that matters.
