In the devastating wake the of the deadly Washington mudslide that demolished their community, the Kuntz family thought they had lost everything like so many others. Though the family was away when the mudslide tore their home from its foundation and carried it 150 feet from its base, the beloved family dog, Buddy, was trapped inside. And there was no sign of the cherished chocolate Lab — that is until Sunday afternoon, when rescuers heard the first strained whimpers from the wreckage.
Working together, the group was able to pull a mud-encrusted though largely unharmed Buddy from the mangled ruins. One onlooker caught the reunion on camera, as others can be heard cheering, crying, and despite the devastation all around them, even laughing at the joyful sight.
