Lewis Vannoy says his 12-year-old Australian Shepherd Duke was thrown about 1,000 feet when a tornado came through Davie County, N.C. recently. The dog was dropped onto the ground across the street where Vannoy said Duke’s right leg was broken in multiple places and his retina was damaged. The dog had multiple surgeries, but he is now home. “He’s going to have a full recovery,” said Vannoy. Lucky dog!
Unfortunately, Vannoy suffered major property loss, but urges others to take safety when a tornado warning comes because he could have lost a lot more.
