Dog waited weeks for owners at home burned in Camp fire

It's a dog story with a happy ending from the site of California's Camp Fire, which started November 8 and eventually killed 85 people and destroyed thousands of homes.

Further into the comments, Sullivan also explained how Miguel was found about an hour away.

Per The Washington Post, Andrea Gaylord could not make it back to her property when the fire first began to spread.

Pictures shared on the K9 Paw Print Rescue's Facebook page show Madison sitting among the burned-down wreckage of his home followed by his realisation his owners had returned. Ms Sullivan spotted Madison a few times in a canyon, apparently guarding territory, and put out fresh food and water regularly in hopes that the dog would turn up, according to a Facebook post by Ms Sullivan.

Rescue workers left food and water each day for the apprehensive dog until Gaylord got back on Wednesday.

Andrea Gaylord, Madison's owner, had requested that animal rescuers look for Madison on the property, the Associated Press reported.

The Camp Fire burned more than 150,000 acres, destroyed almost 14,000 and killed 85 people, according to Cal Fire.

Madison's story was shared by K9 Paw Print Rescue, a charity that has been helping reunite dogs displaced from their owners in the fire.

Madison and Miguel were reunited after weeks apart.

"After meeting Andrea (Madison's owner) in person when I took Miguel to her, I had the idea of placing an article of clothing that would smell like her - i had hugged - to keep Madison's hope alive until his people could return", Sullivan said. Sullivan wrote. "He had stayed to protect what was left of his home, and NEVER gave up on his people! He didn't give up through the storms or the fire". "A LOOOOONG month it must have been for him!"

"You could never ask for better animals", Gaylord told ABC 10.

"What a miracle. So happy for this family", another wrote.

"Their instinctual job is to watch the flocks and we're part of them", Ms Gaylord said about her dogs.

She added "it's a comforting feeling" to know their dogs were that protective of the family home.
