An Illinois National Guard member is reunited with his dog.
Jacob Montgomery lost everything in the November 17th tornado, including his pit bull puppy, Dexter. Montgomery posted pictures of him on social media, as he searched for his dog. After nine days, Dexter was found under the rubble.
Then, a miracle:
A guard spokesman says a neighbor sent Montgomery a Facebook message nine days later to tell him Dexter had been found under debris where the apartment used to be.
An animal rescuing organization had coaxed the 6-month-old puppy out of the rubble with hot dogs.
A veterinarian found Dexter to be malnourished, but without any major injuries.
Montgomery says as soon as the dog saw him “his tail started going.”
I’m sure it did. And kudos to the angels of the animal rescue organization that didn’t give up on Dexter.
