Terlisa Perry was among the group of neighbors who first spotted the dog precariously perched between railings at an apartment building this week in Tampa, Florida. They called 911, but with each passing minute, it became clear they needed to take initiative themselves.
"His hind legs is what was holding him up there, and he was bracing with his front paws and he was dangling there for so long, and every time he would move, everybody was gasping," Perry told News Channel 8.
One of the quick-thinking neighbors supplied a blanket, and together the group held it out below the dog. That's when he took a leap of faith.
