GRAND RAPIDS, MI (WOOD/CNN) – Days after a tornado in Michigan, a family is reunited with their dog, Puckett.

Puckett, part-Labrador and part-border collie, is a 65-pound dog who was staying at a boarding facility in Michigan when storms rolled through on Sunday.

A tornado actually struck the facility.

Days later, his owners got the call that a Kent County, MI employee found Puckett and took him to the animal shelter.

His owners thanked people for looking for Puckett, even though many of them were storm victims themselves.

"We got a lot of support from the community. Everybody was really willing to help out. It was very reassuring to see how many people care, how many people love dogs," Puckett’s owner Norm Christiansen said.

The family says they didn't get any details on where Puckett was found.

He didn't seem to be hurt, though, so they’re just happy to have him home.
