Dog found from Tornado debris, 20 days later

After the struck of May 22 tornado, many pets have been lost and separated from their owner. A tough little dog named Bentley apparently survived for nearly three weeks buried under a pile of tornado debris in Missouri.

Glenda Erwin, director of the Carthage Humane Society, told the Carthage Press that the spunky Shih Tzu was found in a field in the town of Diamond Saturday. It’s suspected Bentley landed there and had been under the debris ever since, judging from the nature of his injuries, which include a nasty scrape between his eyes that shelter officials speculate was caused by flying debris, splinters of wood and blades of grass and carpet fibers embedded under his skin.

Erwin said a woman was in tears when she brought the dog in with a number of children. The woman dropped off the dog, which was wrapped in a towel, at the shelter and left before workers could get her name.

The dog was took to to Central Pet Care in Carthage, where veterinarians and workers shaved the matted fur off the dog and treated its injuries. The dog appears to be deaf and possibly blind, but vets weren’t sure if those conditions are a result of the tornado or were previously existing.

Erwin said she was going to Joplin on Tuesday to look at pictures of missing pets to see if a dog matching Bentley’s description had been reported. “We want to see if the owner is still out there,” Erwin said. “If we don’t find the owner in a week or so, we will put him up for adoption.”
