Puppies Rescued from Buried Hotel

Hotel Rigopiano in central Italy was crushed Wednesday when an avalanche of snow fell on it. Nine people have been rescued, seven have died, and 23 others are still missing. Rescue crews continue to dig around the clock. Two Abruzzo sheepdogs lived at the hotel, and were found wandering the streets after the disaster. But Nuvola and Lupo had puppies in December, which were still missing five days after the avalanche. On Monday, firefighters found all three puppies alive in an air pocket in the hotel's boiler room. The puppies were reunited with their parents. The rescue operation gave firefighters and other emergency workers hope that they may still find other survivors in the wreckage of the hotel.

I am so sorry for all of the people who perished in that hotel. May they RIP.
I can only imagine how many people have applied to adopt these sweet pups. They are beautiful and I am so glad they survived the avalanche. At least there was a small ray of sunshine from this tragedy.
