Vеtеrаn sсаlеs 100 fееt dơwn rаvinе tơ sаvе trаppеd pưppy

An Ohio veteran is credited with saving the life of a puppy that became trapped after falling down a ravine.

The Ross County Humane Society said it received a call about the puppy that had fallen 80-100 feet down the ravine. The puppy landed on a slate ledge near a small waterfall.

Humane society staff members tried to retrieve the 8-week-old puppy but were unable to. They could hear him crying but said he was too far down.

The Ross County Humane Society put out a plea on social media for help and Joe Lawhorn, who is a veteran and a professional cyclist, jưmреd into action.

The humane society said Lawhorn scaled almost 100 feet down the ravine and was able to retrieve the puppy.

The puppy was taken to the North Fork Animal Clinic by shelter staff to be examined and was later returned to the shelter.

The humane society decided to name the puppy Kenda in honor of Lawhorn and his cycling sponsors, one of which is Kenda Tire Road N Gravel. Other puppies at the shelter were also named after Lawhorn’s sponsors, Rudy, Irwin, Marque and Fuji.

The puppies will be available for adơрtion in a few days, the shelter said.
