In what can only be described as doggone good luck, a pair of Dachshunds survived Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and then the earthquake in Haiti almost four and a half years later.

Artist Paul Fowler adopted Bella and Deiter after Katrina and promised to never abandon them, according to an AP report.

Bella and Deiter were initially left in Haiti with a friend because they were not allowed on the transport plane out of Haiti, but are now reunited with their owners.

Fowler, his wife, and the dogs were in Haiti working with AIDS patients for Tulane University. The Fowlers intend on returning to New Orleans with their "indestructible" pooches.
