(Newser) – A bright spot in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence: A dog name Soshe will be reunited with her owner after being trapped in a flooded house in Pender, NC, for almost a week, People reports. Soshe's owner, stuck in another city, got in touch with the Humane Society of Missouri's Disaster Response Team, which was on the scene in North Carolina, asking for help, per KHOU. Twice, traveling by boat, a Humane Society team attempted to locate Soshe's house, but the floodwaters were too high. On the third attempt, they located the house late last month, having to paddle half a mile after their boat's engine broke down. They heard a dog barking inside the house. Two rescuers forced the door open and found Soshe sitting on a couch that was floating in the living room. In addition to saving Soshe, according to KHOU, the Missouri Humane Society team rescued several other dogs, chickens, and horses during its 10-day deployment. Check out video of Soshe's rescue. (One woman helped save 27 animals after Florence and got busted.)
