Dog found after 9 days under tornado rubble

Illinois National Guardsman Spc. Jacob Montgomery and his 6-month-old puppy, Dexter, were reunited nine days after a tornado destroyed their apartment on Nov. 17 in Washington, Ill. An animal rescuing organization used hot dogs to coax the pup out from under a pile of rubble. A veterinarian found Dexter to be malnourished, but without any major injuries.
