After losing their home to California’s deadliest wildfire, one couple had an unexpected reunion with their loyal pet.

K9 Paw Print Rescue, a non-profit, Bay Area-based animal rescue group, said on Facebook this week that the couple returned to the site of their lost home in Paradise, Calif., and their beloved dog Madison was there as well.

“They hoped and prayed he would be OK,” the group posted. “When they finally got clearance to go back to the lot where their house once stood… Madison was waiting there for them as if he were protecting his former home. Never give up!”
