On a Tuesday Gertie, a 35-pound white female terrier mix ran from her yard into the woods.

When she didn't return, her frantic human companion Connie Frick made posters of her and placed them all over her neighborhood.

But as the days passed, there was no word on Gertie. Then 5-days later on Sunday, everything changed.

(Story continues from "Read More")

A neighbor heard a dog crying from behind their garage wall, and called the Cincinnati Fire Department.

When Jenny and the team of other firefighters arrived, they found Gertie, who had fallen, likely 4 to 5 days earlier, and was trapped between two concrete/cinderblock walls.

The only way to get her out would be to use saws and a sledgehammer, and with great care, that is what they did.

It was Jenny who completed the job and then gently lifted Gertie out and carried her to Connie in an exciting and loving reunion, as Gertie wagged her little tail in joy.
