ILLINOIS (CNN) - Talk about a survivor...

A six-month-old pit bull named Dexter was found buried in rubble nine days after a tornado destroyed his owner's Illinois home.

Specialist Jacob Montgomery of the Illinois Army National Guard spent days looking for Dexter after the twister hit on Nov. 17.

His neighbor called Tuesday saying a crew rescued the dog from under a pile of rubble near the family's destroyed apartment.

Montgomery is staying with friends while he looks for a new place to stay, but at least he has Dexter.
