An adorable and very much alive longhaired Dachshund was found in the ruins of her owners’ Hyde Park house nearly a month after the house burned down.

Boston’s Angell Animal Medical Center is caring for the pooch. The dog, Lola, was said to be “upbeat” despite the ordeal.

Weeks after the February 23 fire, Lola’s owners returned tot he condemned property yesterday to survey the damage. To their amazement, they heard scratching sounds and found their small dog inside the ruins.

“Lola was brought to Angell Animal Medical Center last night and is currently being cared for in our Emergency/Critical Care Unit,” said MSPCA-Angell spokesman Brian Adams. “The veterinary team is performing several tests today to uncover the extent of her injuries. Lola remains upbeat given her ordeal.”

    What an amazing story! It makes me cry thinking about how smart Lola is. I have a long-haired dachshund myself and they are really incredible pets. I am so happy for the owner!
