Puppy rescued after being buried by tornado for 9 days

Dexter is a 6-month-old pit bull. He and his owner Jacob Montgomery, a member of the Illinois National Guard, were separated when the twister destroyed Montgomery's apartment in the community of Washington on Nov. 17.

Dexter was found in the debris where the building used to stand. He was so scared that he had to be coaxed out with hot dogs.

Dexter is malnourished, but is going to be fine.
