The dog had been wrapped up in blankets, offered water and food, and the team of rescuers had carried him using a stretcher.

Ban had instantly recognized her owner and subsequently jumped up while wagging its tail and snuggled right into her chest while she embraced him. ‘Thank God…I will never let him go’ A Lucky Dog Survives a Tsunami In Japan – Photo credits: Listverse.com
