After being thrown into the air and wrenched from his family during the devastating tornado that ripped through Alabama, Mason, a terrier mix puppy, crawled home on his broken legs.

His owners feared he was dead after being missing for two weeks.

“This is probably the most dramatic we’ve seen as far as an injury in an animal that’s survived this long,” said Phil Doster at Birmingham Jefferson County Animal Control shelter. The shelter has seen an influx of pets after the tornado.

“For an animal just to show up on someone’s porch after this time was pretty remarkable, especially with the condition he’s in,” said Doster to the London Evening Standard.

Mason had surgery on his legs, and in the process of healing added more than 1,200 friends to his Facebook page.
