Over three weeks ago the horrible and tragic tsunami hit Japan, damaging homes and businesses all across the area. Search and rescue missions have been ongoing ever since that day and today a very unique rescue was completed.
A rescue team reportedly saw a large group of debris drifting along in the ocean and when they approached it found that there was a dog onboard the floating debris. As the boat got close enough the rescue workers quickly pulled the dog on board in order to bring it to the safety of mainland Japan.
Not long after arriving back on land the dog was reunited with its owner. The dog, named Ban, was reportedly very happy to be back on land and with his owner. The miraculous rescue was made even more amazing by the fact that the dog’s owner saw the rescue on TV. Had it not been for the television coverage the rescue got it would have been nearly impossible but everything seemed to work out great for the dog and his owner.
Shortly after seeing the news report the dog’s owner apparently went to a nearby shelter where she was immediately greeted by Ban. The owner reportedly said that after this miraculous rescue she would never let go of the dog again. Basically everyone involved has commented that it truly was a miraculous story and nearly no one can believe that despite everything going on the dog managed to survive for over 3 weeks before being rescued.
