'Miracle' dog found in Bahamas rubble three weeks after hurricane devastated islands

A dog rescued from the rubble of an island devastated by a hurricane has been dubbed a "miracle" for surviving three weeks.

The dog, now aptly-named "Miracle", was found the remains of a building in the Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian ripped through the Caribbean paradise.

He survived by drinking rain water after being trapped underneath an air conditioning unit in Marsh Harbour.

Florida-based animal rescue charity Big Dog Ranch Rescue said he was "emaciated" when he was found by workers.

He charity said he has a "long road to recovery ahead" and will need "physical therapy and a lot of help and strength so he can fully walk again".

More than $3,400 (£2,700) has been donated to aid his recovery.
