Tornado Funnel

The recent rash of tornadoes has been well documented with horrifying pictures of the devastation pervasive across news and social media. One such tornado ripped through Birmingham, Alabama while, Mason, a family dog was home alone in the garage. The family was forced to take cover while they were out and not able to make it home to retrieve Mason, a white terrier mix. When they finally made it home, there was nothing left but debris and no sign of him. The family grieved at their loss but it seemed hopeless.


Mason dog crawls home after tornadoAlmost three weeks later, they returned to sift through the last bits of debris and miraculously, a badly injured but very much alive Mason was there to greet them. He had crawled home on two broken legs! They’ve since learned that Mason was spotted almost two miles away at one point. We are happy to report that Mason is currently under great veterinary care and he’s expected to make a full recovery. What amazing heart from this little dog! This story should inspire us all. Don’t ever give up, EVER!

I heard on the news that his family wasn’t sure if they would take him back or give him up for adoption. What is the latest on that?

The dog’s family wasn’t able to KEEP him, after this remarkable dog climbed on 2 legs to get BACK to them?! I’ll bet they can still keep their KIDS after going through the tornado devestation- they should at the least be able to make a way to keep this dog who is ALSO part of the family. IMO, they dont deserve a pet.

Great story! It tells us that no matter how far we may have gone through in the rush and unexpected blows of the journey of life, we always seek the way to bring us BACK HOME.
