A tearful reunion was caught on camera as two men located their family dog alive after a wildfire tore through their mother’s home in California.
The men hiked for miles to survey the damage and said they figured their beloved dog, Izzy, was killed in the blaze.
But to their surprise, she was completely unharmed.
“It was one of the greatest moments of my life,” Jack Weaver said. “It was elation. We came walking around the corner; we didn’t expect to see her. We were just there to video the house for my parents.”
The men said their mother was ecstatic to learn that Izzy was alive.
Izzy is now resting comfortably at home with the rest of the family.
