As firefighters continued their feverish search for more human survivors of the Abruzzo avalanche, there was a flicker of hope when three puppies were found alive under the rubble.

The three Maremma sheepdog pups had been born in December to the hotel's resident dogs, Lupo and Nuvola (Wolf and Croud) - who had escaped the quake and found shelter in the nearby village of Farindola.

The video below captures the joyful moment the dogs were brought to safety.
