Why?

The dog was lost for a longer time then it should have been lost for because they did not realize that the tags were not on the dog, making the search a lot harder than it needed to be.

When?

January 3rd, 2013 was when the dog was returned, but the dog went missing on December 19th 2012

How?

Dog musher Mark May was training his dogs out in Fairbanks, when a dog (Abby) came running out of the woods. He said that the dog ran with him for about a mile, until it tired out. He said he would have rescued it but he couldn't stop because his dogs were too big. The next morning after running his dogs, Abby showed up on his doorstep! He noticed right away that the dog was Blind so he took it into his house so he could feed it and take care of it until they found the owner. He used social media to return her to her family and now the 8 year old dog is safe and sound.
