The Kuntz family farm didn't survive the disaster, and they had given up hope on finding their chocolate lab Buddy until they returned to the wreckage.

As they were surveying the rubble, they heard the dog whining. Covered in dirt, Buddy came through.

The family says they burst into tears upon seeing that their beloved dog. Now, Buddy is giving one family that's lost so much a reason to smile.

After finding Buddy and losing their cat the Kuntz family is helping rescue other animals from the rubble.
