    A dog who survived for weeks in the rubble left in the wake of Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas has earned its new name — Miracle.

    Big Dog Ranch Rescue, a rescue base in Loxahatchee Groves, Florida, got word on Friday morning that there was a dog in need of emergency care. By 1 p.m. on Friday, Miracle had arrived at the rescue in Florida, NBC News reports.

    Miracle was found emaciated after being trapped under an air conditioner in the town of Marsh Harbour, on the Abaco Islands. It is believed Miracle was trapped for more than three weeks, according to NBC affiliate WPTV.
