After a two-hour search, Shiba was found curled up in a 3-foot-deep crevice. Shiba suffered a broken leg and is being treated at Latham Animal Hospital, Apple said.The dog's owner was walking Shiba in the Hales Cave area of the park without a leash when the puppy began to run rapidly in circles, Apple said."Then it just jumped off the cliff," Apple said.
