A one-year-old German Shepherd survived a bad fall a few months ago. Her human threw her off a second-story balcony, right in front of cops. The puppy was taken into custody by Volusia County Animal Services and given the name “Miracle.” She may have died from the fall, but she landed on her feet with only minor injuries.
Miracle is prepared for her happily ever afterlife in foster care. Humans rushed to save her life that day, therefore it’s now up to her to save herself. The puppy is being taught to be a service dog to help her new family, and she is overjoyed!
Allison Murphy, 35, is the one responsible for Miracle’s suffering. Murphy threatened to leap off the balcony, prompting witnesses to contact the cops. When cops approached her, she instead flung the defenseless dog away.
Following the incident, officials transported Miracle to animal care, where she received a thorough examination. Murphy was charged with a misdemeanor of animal cruelty and a felony of resisting arrest.
The judge ordered Murphy to pay $1,127.24 to the county for the dog’s maintenance. She will also be prohibited from having another pet for the next five years and will be required to take an animal care course before bringing any animal into her house. Hopefully, this will prevent a repeat of Miracle’s situation.
Murphy was also ruled “unable or incompetent” to care for Miracle by the judge on March 5th. Instead, the dog will be kept at the Halifax Humane Society until she is adopted, according to records.
Since the horrible occurrence, Miracle has been with a lovely foster family. Now, however, she’s preparing for a new “leash” on life. She is a great student in her training to become a service dog. Miracle will be adopted by a military veteran who has been looking for a service dog once she is ready.
Miracle may have had a difficult and confused few months, but she’s now ready for her happily ever after. She will not be ruled by a single tragic occurrence. Instead, she’ll do her share to make the world a better place!
