| by Michael Allen

in Gresham, Oregon,  Daisy, a dog belonging to Tammy Johnson, somehow got caught on a small ledge about 200 feet above the bottom of a gravel mine pit.

Daisy was missing for several days before she was noticed, but was reunited with her owner yesterday in a dramatic rescue (video below).

Bob Chamberlain, a member of the Gresham fire department’s Technical Rescue Team, was lowered into the pit with a harness and a T-shirt belonging to the Johnson family.

Chamberlain told KOIN-TV: “As soon as she sniffed that, she was right up against me."
