Their reunion was happy, but bittersweet.

Alabama resident Greg Cook lost his home when a tornado tore through his town of East Limestone, and he thought his dog lost, too.

After sorting through the debris, Cook found his pet Coco – wet, but alive. "It was such a relief," Cook told news station WAFF-TV. "I was happy to see him. I love my dog, he's my best friend and I was just so happy to see him."
