Pet dog recovering after fall down apartment shaft

Dogs aren’t known for having nine lives, but it seems a pup in Florida has at least two.

The dog survived a 14-story fall in an apartment building with just cuts and bruises to show for it.

The cute little maltipoo named Suzie is almost ready to go back home after being treated at Oakland Park Animal Hospital.

Suzie’s owner Elaine Caralis said on Friday night, she was visiting a friend who lives in a Fort Lauderdale condo. They were on the 16th floor when Caralis said Suzie fell through a pipe and ended up on the second floor.

It took firefighters three hours to get her out.

“I thought she died,” Caralis said, “but I was calling her from the wall and she was barking, so I knew she was alive.”

Caralis said she’s so thankful her pup survived the long fall.

“She’s my baby.”
