This Pup Takes A Long Journey Home

Having to evacuate your own home would be a terrifying experience, not to mention leaving all your belongings behind, it would be made even worse if you had to leave a furry member of your family behind too!

This was the case when Hurricane Florence approached land, thousands were forced to evacuate their homes in North Carolina. A tiny dog named Soshe wasn’t able to make it out of their house before the powerful waters hit the little town of Burgaw.

When the Humane Society of Missouri (HSM) made the sizable journey to the area to help save animals that had been left behind, the owner of Soshe has contacted Pender County Animal Control to let them know that their pet was still missing.

However, with every passing day it was harder to save the poor little dog as they were unable to locate the house due to the water levels being so high.

After around a week, the water level had dropped and the emergency services were able to locate the house and their was one last attempt to save Soshe. The expectations were not great as the house had been under water for a week and the water was seven feet deep. As they approached the house it seemed they might be lucky as they could hear barks coming from the house.

One of the HSM guards, Chad Gard entered the house with his colleague Jessica Crampton to see the little dog floating on the coach in the living room.

Unsurprisingly, Soshe was shaken and starving, in the video the dog can be seen eating some well deserved food. Upon hearing the news that their dog had been saved, Soshe’s owners were understandably over the moon and are seen breaking down in tears in the video.

What an amazing effort from the HSM Guards and of course, Soshe.
