    By: Natalie Dreier, Cox Media Group National Content Desk


    Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas a month ago and now a dog is living up to its new name after recently being found buried beneath debris.

    A 1-year-old mix breed dog, now named Miracle, was found in Marsh Harbour last week.

Miracle is now enjoying a lazy Sunday full of love, water, & food! He’s very weak and anemic from about 3 weeks of surviving off rain water. 🥺 He’s definitely got a long road to recovery ahead.

    But another dog that was trapped with Miracle didn't make it, WPTV reported

    Crews from Big Dog Ranch Rescue found the emaciated dog under broken glass, an air conditioning unit and building wreckage by using a drone with infrared detection, CNN reported.

    Miracle was too weak to make a sound, but the dog's tail was wagging when rescuers were able to get to him, Palm Beach Post reported.

    They believe that Miracle was able to survive on rainwater and was found "skeleton thin and unable to walk," according to CNN.

    The rescue got the call Friday morning at 9:30 a.m. that Miracle had been found. They quickly had a plane on the ground in the Bahamas within an hour of that call and Miracle was at the southern Florida ranch by 1:38 p.m. that same day, WPTV reported

    Before he was flown to Florida, he had to be given fluids and some food, WPTV reported.

    Unless his owners claim him, Miracle will be listed for adoption once he makes a full recovery. 

    Big Dog Ranch Rescue is giving the dog medical and emotional support.

    The rescue group has saved 139 dogs since Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas in September.

    About 600 people are still listed as missing after the Category 5 storm, Palm Beach Post reported.
