Undeterred, they returned on Monday with family and friends. Incredibly, they were able to hear barks from the debris below, and Sawyer was pulled to safety.

 

The resilient Lab was taken to a veterinarian where he was treated for some swelling.

Incredibly, neither dog sustained serious injuries, despite being trapped for two days. Both are expected to be A-OK! You can help Sawyer, Lucy, and other four-legged tornado victims by visiting their GoFundMe page.
