Who’s a good boy?!?? Madison, a male Anatolian shepherd mix, somehow survived the catastrophic wildfire in Paradise after fleeing from his owner when it approached. He eventually found his way back and protected the ruins of his home for almost a month until his owner returned, Sac Bee reports. When Andrea Gaylord was allowed back to check on her property this week, there he was. Chillin.

An animal rescuer who responded to Gaylord’s request to check on Madison 1st spotted him several days before. The rescuer also helped locate Madison’s brother Miguel, who was taken to a shelter 85 miles away in the confusing aftermath. In the end, they all survived and were reunited. I’m not crying. YOU’RE crying.
