The lucky dog rescued from a roof drifting off Japanese coast for three weeks after the tsunami has finally been reunited with her owner.
Members of the Japan Coast Guard spotted the stricken pet - who had drifted nearly 2km offshore - during an aerial search of the area.
The two-year-old dog, called Ban, had an emotional reunion with her female owner after the woman spotted her on television.
Ban had survived for three weeks after the tsunami when coastguards spotted her while searching at sea for human survivors.
She was found drifting some 1.8km (1.1 miles) off Kesennuma, Miyagi prefecture, one of the Japanese areas hit worst by the disaster.
Local television showed showed pictures of the dog scampering around the roof of the house before it disappeared inside through a hole in the roof.
