Bean The Alaskan Dachshund Trapped Under Massive Snow For 4 Hours


Meet 'Bean.'  The Valdez, Alaska smooth dappled chocolate boy had a close call when his humans couldn't find him for 4 hours.  Then they remembered that he was outside while the roof was being shoveled following a massive snowstorm which laid down 5 feet of snow over 3 days.  His humans called for him and heard him whimper and dug him out.  Luckily he was trapped near an air pocket. 
“He was hesitant to crawl out of the hole, and was scared and shaking,” his human said. “His nose, paws, and ears were cold but his body was pretty warm … he wasn’t any worse for wear.”
We're glad you're OK little guy.  Read more at the Valdez Star.
