Firefighters rescued a dog who had been imprisoned for five days between concrete barriers.
After being stuck between two concrete walls for five days, a DOG who went missing after going into the woods was found five days later.
On Tuesday, July 13, Gertie was last seen by her owners, who were leaving the front door open to their home. But it wasn’t until 9.40 a.m. on Sunday, July 19, that firefighters were alerted to a dog crying behind a garage wall.
Firefighters quickly realized the dog had fallen down a small fissure and was caught between two concrete walls, according to a statement from the Cincinnati Fire Department.
In order to free Gertie from the little opening in the wall, a sledgehammer and a saw were employed to pound a hole through the wall in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Jenny Atkins, a firefighter, rescued the dog 10 minutes later with no serious injuries.
The department shared a video on Facebook of the final minutes before Atkins was able to break through the wall and reach Gertie.
“There was no way to carry the dog out of the crevice, so they decided to breach the concrete block wall with saws and a sledgehammer,” they added.
“Truck 20 did an excellent job on this run, resulting in a happy reunion!”
Gertie is believed to have been trapped inside the breach for the entire five days, according to the department.
After viewing posters of Gertie, Vanessa Rolland, who alerted the authorities, said she was aware of a dog missing in the region.
“We were just excited,” she explained. We were like, ‘I can’t believe it,’ because we knew it had been a long time, so we thought, ‘This is exciting,’ and hoped she was okay.’

Connie Frick and Lynn Herman, the pet’s owners, stated their pet was resting but generally well following the event.
“It was just so sweet, wagging that tiny nub tail, and she was just so, so excited,” Connie recalled.
