Utah family's dog plummets 300 feet during hike, survives
ST. GEORGE, Utah - A Utah family's dog is recovering after surviving a 300-foot fall.
The McInnes family of Eagle Mountain tells Salt Lake City's KSL-TV on Sunday that Toby, a 1-year-old English Sheepdog poodle, is resting at home.
The family was hiking Thursday at Gooseberry Mesa, west of Zion National Park, when Toby leapt off a cliff.
Washington County sheriff's deputy Darrell Cashin says the dog fell 150 feet and then tumbled another 150 feet down the mountain.
A first responder was able to reach him and carried the 75-pound dog up a steep incline.
Toby suffered injuries to his head, brain and eyes, as well as several scrapes.
Dr. Kelly Houston, a veterinarian in St. George, says he's had patients who died after a 20-foot fall, and he was amazed by Toby's survival.
