Dog Survives 100-Foot Drop Off Overpass

A family dog is back home after being missing from almost three weeks and surviving a jump from a 100-foot overpass.

According to the Round Rock Police Department in Round Rock, Texas, animal control officers responded to a call reporting a scared dog on a highway. Animal Control Officer Lisa Stern found the dog, named Bundy, perched on a concrete slab. When she tried to approach him, Bundy jumped off the overpass, falling 100 feet.

Stern brought the dog to the emergency veterinarian, where X-rays and an ultrasound revealed no injuries other than bruising. The veterinarian also found a microchip. When the family was located, they reported Bundy had gone missing on Halloween.

“Truly, a happy ending to a serious situation for a lost dog,” the police department posted on Facebook. “Thank you to everyone that called in and voiced concern for Bundy's well-being. Great job to everyone that assisted on this call for service!”

An Instagram post from the owner on Nov. 18 showed Bundy looking in better health and spirits.
