Dog Rescued From Sinkhole In Frederick

Samantha, a 14-year-old Lhasa apso with normally snow-white fur, was brown and shaking when she emerged from a sinkhole in the early afternoon hours of a snowy Sunday.

Samantha had been trapped underground for nearly eight hours after she fell into the hole, just steps from Susanne Geary's back porch.

Geary had taken Samantha into the backyard at about 7 a.m. when she suddenly realized the dog, which stands barely a foot off the ground and is deaf and blind, was no longer by her side.

“I was looking at the bird feeder and the next thing I knew, she was gone,” Geary said Sunday evening.
