A police officer was sent to the woman’s home to perform a wellness check. While talking to the woman, the officer reached down to the ground to retrieve an object that had fallen over. The officer reportedly saw a small face looking out at him under the 93-year-old woman’s recliner.
Apparently Toby had simply gotten stuck under the recliner.
Fortunately, he seemed to be in good health apart from being understandably hungry and thirsty. After freeing the dog, the officer fed him and gave him some water.
