Video: Family dog rescued from home destroyed by Oso mudslide
Amidst the tragedy and devastation of the Oso mudslide comes a small miracle for one family who lost everything – the discovery of their beloved dog alive and well buried in the rubble of what was their home.
Julie and Cory Kuntz and their son Quinton had just left for a baseball game when the slide leveled their neighborhood, taking everything with it. They returned home to find their house destroyed, and their dog and cat missing.
As family members were surveying the rubble, they heard whimpering and frantically began digging through the debris. Moments later, they found the chocolate lab stunned and filthy, but otherwise fine and seemingly no worse for the wear.
Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the family. Their aunt, Linda McPherson, who lived next door, died in the slide. All of their belongings were destroyed as well.
A family friend has set up a crowdfunding page to help raise money for the family.
