The Moment a Family Discovers Their Dog Survived Deadly California Wildfire

posted by Zuko -

Jack Weaver and his brother-in-law Patrick Widen hiked miles to Weaver's mother's home in Santa Rosa earlier this week. Despite being turned away by police, the men managed to make their way to the property to find their dog Izzy. 

They went there to get what they thought was the body of their family dog who was presumed dead after the fire but when they got there she was alive and greeted them.

Just a heartwarming story to share in the middle of all this devastation. My parents woke up with flames surrounding their house in wikiup bridgeway and had seconds to get out. In the chaos of trying to escape, my parent's dog Izzy ran from them. My mom couldn't chase after her without risking her own life. They had to drive through walls of flames and across a burning wooden bridge to get to mark west springs road and to safety. They lost everything, but my mom was most devastated about leaving Izzy. My brother and husband were determined to try to get back to my parents property to see if by some miracle Izzy survived. They were turned away by police officers, but if you know my brother Jack or husband Patrick...neither one likes to be told no. They ended up hiking just under 3 miles to my parent's property. This video shows the last part of their hike up to my parent's house. It's a little long, but the ending is worth the watch.
