Dumbo dog is 'miracle' for surviving fall

A dog was saved from a fall by its large ears.

The two-year-old Basset Hound, Remy, launched himself out of a third-floor window but survived the fall with just a few scrapes despite landing on his face, thanks to his over-sized ears which slowed him down as he plummeted to the concrete floor below.

Owner Suzi Lane, who has compared the pooch to the Disney elephant Dumbo, told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I don't know if he was trying to glide down or if it was his ears that saved him. It's just a miracle.

"It was a shock at the time, but he is an amazing dog I said about a week into owning him that he was trouble and now he's proved it."
