WASHINGTON, Ill. (AP) - A dog and his owner have been reunited after the animal was found under a pile of rubble more than a week after a tornado ripped through a central Illinois city.

Jacob Montgomery of Washington and his dog Dexter were separated when the Nov. 17 tornado damaged Montgomery's third floor apartment.

Montgomery is a member of the Illinois National Guard.

A guard spokesman says a neighbor sent Montgomery a Facebook message nine days later to tell him Dexter had been found under debris where the apartment used to be.

An animal rescuing organization had oaxed the 6-month-old puppy out of the rubble with hot dogs.

A veterinarian found Dexter to be malnourished, but without any major injuries.

Montgomery says as soon as the dog saw him "his tail started going."

   A $25,000 reward is being offered after Phineas the dog disappeared Friday night from the Salem, Missouri vet's office where he's lived for more than a year.  

   The dog has been the subject of legal challenges after being condemned by the mayor in 2012 for allegedly biting a 7 year old girl.  She wasn't seriously hurt and experts are questioning the photographic evidence of that bite.

   Staff at the veterinary office discovered Phineas missing when they arrived about 7:30 Saturday morning.  They'd last seen him Friday evening when they fed the dog.

   The vet who's been caring for Phineas, Dr. J. J. Tune was expected to testify at a pivotal court hearing Thursday.  Dr. Tune told Fox 2 News that the evidence seems to lean in the dog's favor.  "You know, in my estimation, the dog would have been exonerated," Tune said.  "The bite wound that they have pictures of is of a primate bite.  It's not of a canine bite."

   Now the dog's owners are worried that someone who wanted to harm the dog has taken him.  Their attorney, Joe Simon told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that it's likely the dog is dead.  Even so, the reward for information about his disappearance stands.

STANDARD, Ill. (AP) - A dog fell 23 feet into a northern Illinois well, then dog-paddled for two hours until firefighters could hoist him to safety.

It happened Saturday near the tiny Putnam County town of Standard when a Goldendoodle named Doogie ran to greet a worker who had opened the top of the family's well to inspect it.

Homeowners Arch and Judy Hopkins called the ordeal "horrifying."

Doogie alternated between swimming and extending his legs to wedge himself from wall to wall while firefighters figured out how to get him out.

They feared he might fall again if they used a harness made for people.

Eventually he was hoisted out after a firefighter rappelled into the well and got the dog into a mesh body bag, which allowed air water to pass through.

A St. Charles County man has been found guilty of breaking into an ex-girlfriend's house and beating her dog.

Charles Zidek broke into the woman's home in late 2011. Once inside the house, Zidek attacked her greyhound dog named Vinny. Vinny's injuries were so bad he had to be euthanized.

Zidek was convicted on two felony charges including animal abuse.

Dog dies after being set on fire

The dog, found with burns across his body yesterday, died this morning.

The dog named Brownie was found behind a home in the 4300 block of Cote Brilliante. Neighbors told authorities they saw the dog covered in flames. Despite receiving treatment at the Veterinary Specialty Services, Brownie died today. The St. Louis Animal Cruelty Task Force was activated today and Stray Rescue and CrimeStoppers are working together to come up with a reward for information that leads to a conviction.
