In March of this year, a horrific tornado tore through Tennessee and claimed the lives of 25 people and caused several injuries. One family is now celebrating a reunion with a four-legged friend they lost due to this event.
Eric and Faith Johnson lost their Australian Shepherd, Bella, during the storm. The Johnson family lives in Cookeville, Tennessee and they credit Bella with waking them up and saving their lives just before the tornado came through their area. Thankfully, they made it out with nonlife-threatening injuries but Bella was nowhere to be found.

A few weeks after the tornado, neighbors of the Johnsons said Bella could be seen walking around the neighborhood but was too afraid to come near anyone. According to Fox News, Eric would return to the neighborhood with pieces of clothing so she could remember the scent.
A family friend, Sarah Romeyn, received “a call from an employee of an animal grooming business who thought to have seen Bella across the street”, News Channel 5 Nashville said. Romeyn then started placing food outside in a small alleyway for Bella to eat and was recovered there.
Once recovered, Bella was taken to get some grooming done and to get a bath. Eric Johnson posted on his Facebook “At the moment our miracle dog has a full belly of food and is currently sleeping in a warm bed where she belongs.”
