Dachshund Miracles: Sophia Rescued After Three Days in 16-Foot-Deep Hole
Sometimes in life, if you're lucky, you may come to love someone so deeply that you refuse to give up -- even when reason and family and friends all say it's time to let go.
These are the stories we love. Meet lucky red smooth 'Sophia,' who hails from Clermont, Florida, with her human Angela Surguine. 7-year-old Sophia didn't come in for dinner after a long day helping her humans do yard work on their 5-acre property, and she had never gone missing before. After days of fruitless searches, Mrs. Surguine heard a bark from under the ground. Could Sophia have fallen into a deep hole dug by gopher tortoises? And so the digging began. They dug and dug and dug, eventually creating a giant 12-foot crater.
