Japanese Dog Who Survived Three Weeks at Sea after the Tsunami Reunited with Owner

(Video Link)

Ban, a two-year old dog from Japan, survived three weeks at sea on a rooftop after the recent earthquake and tsunami. He was rescued from the Japanese Coast Guard and, as you can see in this video, reunited with his owner:

The 2-year-old dog, named Ban, greeted her owner “with joy, jumping and wagging her tail.”

”We’ll never let go of her,” the owner was quoted as saying by a center official, according to Kyodo News, which portrays the reunion as more subdued, writing that the dog “happily wagged her tail when the owner appeared.”
