Brandi the Beagle became an accidental daredevil this week, showing off some Superdog-esque survival skills. According to the (New Jersey) Courier-Post, the 7-year-old pup survived a 70-foot fall from the Burlington-Bristol Bridge that connects New Jersey and Pennsylvania.


The ordeal started when the Beagle went missing during her usual walk at the promenade by the bridge. Police soon joined owners Alexis and Robert Lorenz in their efforts to find Brandi. Bridge officer Rob Bittner saw Brandi on the bridge shortly after the search started and slowly followed her in his squad car. Bittner turned on the car's lights to slow down traffic and protect the dog.

During her crossing, Brandi's foot got caught in the bridge's grating and several drivers exited their cars and attempted to secure the Beagle. Frightened by all the new faces and commotion, Brandi backed away, eventually running off the 70-feet-tall bridge. Unfazed by the plunge, she quickly swam to shore after hitting the water.

The officials and Lorenzes made their way down to the shore and began once again to search for the dog. After another hour of scouring the area, Brandi was finally found by Alexis Lorenz.

"I didn't want to do anything to scare her, so I slowly grabbed the leash and her treats," Lorenz told the Courier-Post about finding the dog. "I clipped the leash and that was it," she said. "I couldn't believe it. It was a miracle."

The miracle continued when Brandi was taken to the vet and was found to have no broken bones, just light bruising.

The Good Lord was watching over you Brandi, or maybe it was my big Saint Bernard Brandi who is at the Rainbow Bridge...
Next time owners, keep her and all pets on a leash, around a bridge you dummies.
Be well Brandi!
