April 1 2011: Tsunami dog rescued



The Japanese coast guard rescued a pet dog on Friday that somehow survived three weeks at sea after apparently being washed away in the tsunami.

Reuters reported the dog was found on the roof of a house floating off the coast of Kesennuma, in the Myiagi prefecture in northern Japan.

The dog was described as "emaciated, but alive" after it had been adrift since the March 11 disaster.

A helicopter first spotted the dog, but the animal was scared by the propellers, so it hid under the roof. Rescuers were forced to descend onto the roof to try to lure the dog to safety. They even tried to poke a hole in the roof, but the dog still stayed away.

Eventually, the dog was saved by a coast guard boat that took over the rescue when the helicopter ran out of fuel, Japanese broadcaster NTV said.

Welcome to the cellar RocketGirl!


The dog looks to be in good shape. Amazing it didn't fatally drink saltwater in all that time.

Poor buddy! A great story but with this tragedy there are so few of them that even the animal rescues are news.



Big Sarge  Sunday Apr 3 04:44 AM

yeah great save, but what about the poor sharks that had been waiting for him to fall in the water?? poor little sharks



SPUCK  Sunday Apr 3 05:52 AM

As long as that dog survived this one beat him by a week!

There are still houses floating out at sea? Wow, that's pretty amazing right there. They'll be washing ashore for months to come. I wonder which country they'll end up in? Will there be some in the middle of the Pacific Gyre for decades to come?
