Family Reunites With Missing Dog Who Fled When Their Home Caught Fire During California Wildfires

After being denied entry at the police barricades to his mother Katherine’s Santa Rosa, California neighborhood, Jack Weaver and and his brother-in-law Patrick Widen took a circuitous back route through the smoky woods to look for their dog Izzy, who fled in fear when their home caught fire due to the Northern California wildfires.

The two men breathlessly hiked for three miles until they reached the family home. Seeing that the house was burned to the ground due, both Weaver and Widen feared that Izzie perished as well. Yet, after a few moments of calling her name, a big beautiful bernese mountain dog came lumbering out of the woods safe and sound.
