Chihuahua Survives Tornado


Giving the cat that survived being shot in the head with an arrow a run for his money, a tiny Chihuahua named Paco has survived a tornado (actually, two tornadoes) that hit Pulaski County, Virginia, causing more than eight million dollars in damage and much destruction to his owner’s house. Paco walked away with a fractured leg and a torn ear, and while he needs surgery, he is expected to be fine. Meanwhile, the community is rallying around Paco and the animal hospital is helping to pay for his medical treatments. Aw. Go, Paco!
