This dog from North Carolina is lucky to be alive today after being impaled on an iron fence that perimeters his backyard.
The lucky pup named Wilbur, was out and about when he started chasing birds around his backyard when he tried to jump the 5 foot fence. The sharp iron fence went straight through his hip.
His owner, Mary Anne Dixon-Hubbard, grew extremely concerned and called the police. She told the 911 operator: “I have a dog that tried to jump over a fence but got himself impaled.”
While waiting for help to arrive Mary Anne’s son was holding Wilbur up. Firefighters finally arrived and were able to cut down the fence and rush the labrador to the vet. Luckily none of Wilbur’s vital organs were damaged, he is expected to make a full recovery.
