HYDE PARK, Mass.-- Fire destroyed Terisa Acevedo's apartment nearly one month ago. She was told that everything was gone, including her 2-year-old Dachshund named Lola.
But on Monday, when Acevedo, 24, went back to her apartment to tend to some business, she heard some scratching at the door, MyFoxBoston reports.
"I called out her name and she started crying. She's been in the house the whole time!" Acevedo said.
The amazing discovery led to a reunion that seemed impossible. Lola was found in the rubble of the apartment, which had been destroyed by fire.
"When I found her it just made me think that nothing else in the world can bother me right now. I'm so happy that I have her," Acevedo said.
Little Lola is now recovering at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston. She will be reunited with her thankful owner on Wednesday.
