Lost Dog Found in Yellowstone After Almost Two Months

After almost a month-and-a-half in the wild, a lost dog in Yellowstone National Park has been found.

After Denver resident David Sowers ended up in a car crash near Canyon Village July 23, his 14-month-old Australian shepherd name Jade ran away from the wreck. Against the advice of his doctors—Sowers sustained multiple injuries, including a shattered knee—he made three return trips to the Park, hoping to find the dog.

Indeed, the dog was sighted multiple times since the crash around the Canyon area, including a construction site. Since the story broke, multiple people reported to Park officials that they saw the dog, described as having black-and-white fur.

Park rangers were cautiously optimistic about finding the lost dog, although Sowers was reportedly emotionally distraught, toward the point of giving up.

We will have a separate story once more developments occur.
