Heartwarming Tearjerker of the Day: In a story that reminds us how the powers of the Internet can be used for good, a Tennessee woman turned to Facebook last week to save a dog’s life.
Beth-Andy Kohn Gresham was on a work break in Memphis on Friday when she noticed a nearby dog with its head stuck in a jar. “[I] got within 15-20 feet and it raised its head but went into the woods,” she said.
Luckily, Gresham had just enough time to snap this pic, which she promptly posted to Facebook. By the next day, the photo boasted more than 300 comments and had inspired a dozen would-be rescuers.
After a Saturday of searching in woods where “you sink to your ankles” and that were thick with briars, brush, and “other obstacles,” Gresham said, she and her team finally located the dog and used container cutters to set him free.
Gresham posted a video of the dog — called Miracle — to Facebook today: “Thanks everyone. Miracle is worth it !!! She is just precious. Was able to visit with her at the vets office yesterday”
