Dog swept out to sea by tsunami is rescued in Japan

Posted: Updated:

(CBS 8) - Three weeks after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, a dog that was swept out to sea has been rescued.

The Japanese Coast Guard spotted the dog on the roof of a washed away house and sent a rescue boat to pick it up.

The dog reportedly wolfed down sausages and biscuits and lots of water, but appears to be in good condition. The Coast Guard says the dog did not have a name tag or ID on its collar.

A total of 27,500 people were either killed or are still missing after the massive earthquake and tsunami.
