Six days after Mexico City was ravaged by an earthquake, there seemed little hope of finding anyone alive among the rubble.
But a Japanese rescue team was thrilled to find one more tiny survivor — a schnauzer, who they managed to pull from the ruins of a collapsed apartment building.
The lucky dog was checked out by vets, and had somehow managed to remain in good health. Authorities now hope to reunite the schnauzer with her family as soon as possible.
Thank you to rescuers who travelled from around the world to save lives — both human and animal — in the wake of this tragic disaster.
