Dec. 10 (UPI) -- A dog that had been missing since its California owner was forced to evacuate from the path of the Camp Fire was found weeks later sitting guard at the home.
Andrea Gaylord said her two dogs, Miguel and Madison, spend most of their time outside, and she was unable to locate them before being forced to evacuate her Paradise home.
Miguel was later found by animal rescue volunteer Shayla Sullivan, but no trace could be found of Madison.
Sullivan regularly left food and water outside Gaylord's home in case Madison came home, but there were no sightings of the canine until the evcuation order was lifted.
Gaylord arrived at her house and immediately was greeted by Madison.
"Imagine the loyalty of hanging in in the worst of circumstances and being here waiting," Gaylord told KXTV. "It was so emotional."
The K9 Paw Print Rescue detailed Madison's story in a Facebook post.
