In the wake of her rescue, a 26-year-old woman from the ACT has written a post on social media describing her harrowing experience.
Ms Vicky Burt told the ABC that her dog’s name was “Vicky” and was her family’s pet rabbit.
Ms Burt said she was “in the middle of nowhere” when she lost her pet, and had to climb down a cliff in the ACT to reach a truck, which had pulled over.
“My dog was on top of me, and my legs were just hanging out of my boots and my feet were dangling down,” she said.
“The truck pulled up and just stopped.
The engine started and it went ‘boom’.”
It sounded like the engine was on fire and I was looking out the window and saw my dog.
“I thought ‘oh my god, my dog’s alive’.”
Ms Bamparig was on the back of a truck in South Australia when the driver lost control and crashed into the bush.
“He lost control of the truck and fell backwards off the side of the road,” Ms Bampart said.

“They just started screaming, ‘he’s alive!'” she said, adding that the truck driver was “really shaken”.
“He was so shaken up, and he just started crying.
He was so scared and he didn’t know what to do.”
Ms Bregel said she thought the driver had “done a terrible thing” and asked for help.
“I just wanted to say, ‘I’m sorry, I don’t know how to say this but I’m alive,'” Ms Bregell said.
