A lucky New York shelter dog named Pandy seems to have almost as many lives as a cat.
Pandy was saved from a meat market in Thailand and taken to the Animal Haven shelter in New York.
“She was rescued from the dog meat trade in Asia — the illegal dog meat trade,” shelter executive director Tiffany Lacey told CBS New York.
Then, as a snowstorm stuck the city on Tuesday, the 4-year-old pooch got spooked and ran off while she was being walked in SoHo by a volunteer.
The frightened dog ran 40 blocks through Manhattan in freezing temperatures all the way to the Lincoln Tunnel, where officers from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey managed to grab her leash when she was halfway through the tunnel.
The officers took the cold and wet dog with bloody paws to the ASPCA to have her microchip scanned, ABC7NY.com reported.
Animal Haven was relieved and happy to have Pandy back.
“PURE JOY,” the shelter said in a post on its Facebook page.
“We can’t even begin to tell you how grateful we are for the army of animal lovers who helped her find her way back … She is a true miracle dog.”
