Family discovers their dog survived deadly wildfire, was waiting for them to return

A household was elated to find that their Bernese Mountain Dog, Izzy, somehow managed to survive.  

Jack Weaver and his brother-in-law Patrick Widen hiked miles in Santa Rosa this past week. The men were able to make their way into the property for a significant assignment despite being turned away by police.  

Although most valuables were destroyed in the wildfire that ripped through the city, the men returned to the burned down home to recover the entire body of the household dog, which was assumed dead, that the Associated Press reports.

However, if the men arrived on the scene, Izzy was there waiting for them to reunite, tail.  

“The anticipation is killing me,” Jack can be heard saying in a clip, afterwards uploaded to Facebook by Beckyjean Widen, Jack’s sister. The men start to desperately telephone whistling and clapping. Eventually, among those men stains the dog, and the two immediately break down.

“Izzy’s here! Izzy! Izzy, come here, baby!” Jack says as the dog approaches.

According to the article from Beckyjean Widen, her parents had been forced to evacuate in the middle of the night, and Izzy conducted away. Kathy Weaver, their mom, was clearly upset they had been forced to leave the household dog.

“They lost everything, but my mom was most devastated about leaving Izzy,” Beckjean wrote.

“She went from being devastated about losing her home to the being the happiest person I’ve ever noticed. I could not get home fast enough. She was really, really happy … She’s still shaken up from the entire thing, but she’s in much better spirits now that Izzy is in our house,” Jack told the Associated Press.  

A vet check revealed that Izzy was unharmed in the flame, which can be considering.  

The Tubbs fire burnt over 35,000 acres in Santa Rose, and is just 60 percent contained as of Sunday, in accordance with California firefighters. Overall, the multiple fires that began initially on Oct. 8 are responsible for the deaths of at least 40 people, making it the deadliest wildfire epidemic in the nation’s history.
