Tornado Destroys Home And Traps Dog Under Rubble Until Neighbors Come Together To Free Him

In late February 2018, rural Montgomery County, Tennessee, was ravaged by two tornadoes. According to the Leaf-Chronicle, the storms hit on Saturday night, February 24, and damaged at least a dozen homes.

One home in Clarksville, Tennessee, was totally destroyed, according to Inside Edition. Sadly, the house collapsed on top of a dog — but amazingly, the pup managed to survive.

After the tornado ripped through Clarksville, neighbors emerged from their homes to assess the damage. And that’s when a group came together to help the family dog escape from a scary-looking pile of rubble.

In the video below, the rubble is deep and definitely dangerous — there’s even what looks like a washing machine on the very top of the pile. But with the help of caring neighbors and a bag filled with dog food, the Clarksville community is able to remove enough of the debris and coax the scared dog back out to safety. It’s a long and arduous rescue mission — but without a doubt it was worth it.

I can only imagine how incredible it must have felt to watch the dog escape from the rubble. Thankfully, he looked unharmed and actually pretty unfazed.
