3 weeks after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami,a lone dog was rescued at sea off the coast of Kesennuma, Japan, on Friday after being found drifting on a roof surrounded by debris,according to the Japan Coast Guard.(Huffpo)

The Tsunami dog, as it has been dubbed,was spotted by helicopter at around 4 p.m. by a special rescue unit from the 3rd Regional Coast Guard Headquarters, operating out of Yokohama.(Source)

After the helicopter rescue attempts failed, three crew members approached the dog on a boat and got it aboard, after sensing that the rescuers were friends and not foes.

It is not known what the fate of the dog’s owners is or how it managed to survive its 3-week ordeal, but the coast guard hopes the dog will lead them to its owners, and help solve the mystery of the Tsunami dog.(USA Today)
