A 13-year-old Australian Shepherd is said to be doing well after surviving through an unimaginable ordeal -- thanks, in no small part, to the loyalty of his owner and the dedication of two Pennsylvania police officers.
Sheila Shorr tells CBS Philly that when her dog Pluto failed to come home one day last week, she knew something must have been terribly wrong. Instead of simply hoping that he would return, Shorr spent nearly three days scouring the area around her home in Chester County before she finally discovered him in the most dire of predicaments.
Pluto had gotten stuck in a deep mud pit along a nearby creek, his muzzle just barely cresting the dirty water that pooled around him. Shorr believes he had been there the entire time, clinging to life for about sixty hours.
