After five days without any sign of Gertie, a miracle happened that led people to where she was trapped at.

A neighbor was out walking her dog when she heard a noise. She decided to stop and follow the sound — from a concrete wall.

She then heard some “whining,” which prompted her dog to bark, and so Gertie did the same. The neighbor then realized that behind the walls was a confined poor pup.

“She fell through a roof of a hillside garage that was very dilapidated,” Connie said. “From what they could explain to us, she fell through the roof and whatever had been an old wall was replaced with a cinder block wall, which was keeping it from falling down. She was caught in between the two.”

The Cincinnati Fire Department responded to the rescue and realized that they had to break down some parts of the wall first before getting Gertie out safely.

With a sledgehammer in hand, firefighter Jenn Adkins got to work and was able to successfully set the pooch free in 10 minutes!

The 35-pound white terrier mix seemed to be stuck behind the wall for the entire five days that she was gone, the firefighters suspected. But the brave pup persevered.

Connie attributed Gertie’s ability to survive for so long to her experiences as a wild dog. Regardless of the reason, though, the fur mom was just so thrilled to have Gertie back home.

“She was so excited,” Connie said. “Everybody was loving on her. The firefighters were so happy.”
