It almost too good to be true, but this little dog has been found alive and well drifting at sea, an amazing three weeks after the tsunami that shattered Japan.  Members of the Japan Coast Guard came across the dog on Friday as they were leading an aerial pursuit of the area.

The dog appears no worse for the wear by living in a partially submerged house that had been swept out to sea.  Local TV showed pictures of the little dog darting around on the roof of the house before it disappeared inside thru a hole in the roof.

Rescuers had hopes of finding more tsunami survivors living inside the house but after tearing the roof open, it was found to be empty except for the dog.

Rescue at sea

Despite its three weeks at sea, the medium-sized brown dog seemed to be in reasonably good condition considering its ordeal.

The discovery of the dog is a rare glimmer of hope in Japan where thousands of people are believed to have perished in the disaster.

The nation is now gripped by the ongoing nuclear threat posed by the unstable Fukushima plant as workers continue to battle to restore vital cooling systems damaged by the quake.
