News from Japan: An Amazing Dog Rescue Story

Thousands of lives have been lost or changed forever following the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, so the occasional uplifting moments that emerge from the situation seem all the more precious.

Amazingly, a dog was able to survive for three weeks in a house that was swept away by the tsunami and set adrift in the ocean. A rescue helicopter saw the dog going back and forth between the roof and upper portion of the mostly-submerged home, and workers were eventually able to save her.

The dog, whose name is Ban, has now been happily reunited with her owner. Watch the video below, and remember that it’s never too late to make a donation to relief efforts in Japan.
