When an EF-3 tornado ripped through Van, Texas, and flipped Andy and Brandi Bouchillon’s truck, they assumed they’d never see their beloved dog, Tater, again. While they were rushed to the hospital with their baby, who was also in the truck during the debilitating crash, Tater ran off. (Luckily the family was not injured.)

“I really don’t know what else to say. I’m just glad that my dog is back,” Bouchillon says in a tearful video posted by Now This, as Tater licks his face.

Though the couple and their baby emerged unharmed after the wreck, they were understandably worried about Tater. Miraculously, when they returned to the crash scene days later, Tater was there waiting for them.

“I’m just glad he’s okay,” Bouchillon says, giving Tater a sweet back rub.
