The dog, a terrier mix called Mason, had hid in a garage to escape from the tornado. When his owners saw the garage torn apart, they searched for Mason, but to no avail.

Three weeks later, they returned home to assess the damage to their home, and found Mason sat on the front porch. He seemed happy, although he had suffered from two broken front legs, and had to undergo a three-and-a-half hour surgery to fix his legs. Even on splints, Mason is full of adventure!

Mason is currently being cared for at the Birmingham Jefferson Animal Control Shelter, and will be returned home to his family in around six weeks.
