The Humane Society of Missouri rescued a tiny Maltese who survived for a week, floating on a couch alone, in the family’s home after Hurricane Florence.
According to the rescue organization, their relief team received a plea from a desperate homeowner who fled her flooded home, but her white pooch named Soshe had been left stranded in the Pender County house. Although the Disaster Response team had searched the area twice, the rising flood waters had made it impossible to get near the woman’s home.
Just a few days later as the waters receded, the team paddled to the area and found the house. The video shows Chad Gard and Jessica Crampton wading through the deep water to the front door of the home. After kicking down the door, there was Soshe -wet and shivering on the couch, but very much alive. She was swooped up into the arms of her rescuers, and it wasn’t long before she was made comfortable and eating.
Another woman who can be seen in the video stated the dog’s owner had been a customer of hers at her farm and explained how distraught Soshe’s owner had been because she couldn’t get to her dog.
