Default Dog survives Camp Fire, waits nearly a month on burned out Paradise lot for owners

The deadly Camp Fire that ravaged Butte County spread horrifically fast last month, forcing residents to make split-second decisions as they scurried for safety. Countless cherished items were left behind, including pets, unfortunately.

Last week, close to a month after the blaze ignited on Nov. 8, one couple was able to visit the lot where their home once stood and a special family member was waiting for them. Their dog Madison, who they hadn't seen since evacuating their Paradise home, was alive.
I thought we could use a nice story like this.

He is a good good boy. I saw in another report that the rescue had gotten some clothing with the owner's scent on it and placed it at the ruin, to reassure Madison that his people would come home.

Praises also to the rescuer who kept putting out water and food, as near as I can tell before there was any evidence that that particular dog (or any dog) was eating/drinking it.
