This is the miracle dog that was rescued yesterday after spending three weeks at sea in the wake of Japan's massive earthquake and tsunami of March 11.
A coastguard rescue team spotted the resilient canine trotting around the roof of a house that was swept out to sea. Local television showed an aerial view of a brown medium-sized dog on the roof -- the only part of the house floating above water -- before it disappeared inside through a broken section of the roof.
A coastguard rescue worker was lowered from a helicopter to transport the animal to safety by boat.
