Two abandoned canines beat incredible odds to survive.

Miracle, the pit bull mix, went out to play ball last weekend, navigating on her surgical leg, as if she were as good as new, according to Erin Pacheco, Forever Paws shelter manager.

No one seeing her play would have imagined two months earlier this dog had survived for weeks in a vacant apartment where her owners abandoned her.

On Sept. 30, the starving dog made a desperate and heroic leap from a third floor window to find food.
