Dog Walks 9 Days to Get Home After Being Lost in California

By    |   Wednesday, 08 Jul 2015 07:05 AM

A dog named Georgia apparently walked 37 miles in nine days to find her way back  home after getting lost while chasing a rabbit in a California preserve.

Kris Anderson told KFMB-TV she took her dogs to the Los Penasquitos Preserve near San Diego for a hike on June 27 when Georgia ran off. She described her dog to the San Diego Union-Tribune as an 8-year-old Shar Pei mix.

 


"I heard her go after a rabbit and I heard the bark and thought, oh she will come back," Anderson told KFMB-TV. "I whistled for her, no Georgia, I called her and called her and no Georgia."

Anderson's concern for George worsened when a park ranger told her about the perils for dogs in the preserve, which has mountain lions and coyotes. Anderson said she returned to the park every other day to look for Georgia without success.

Then on Monday morning, Georgia came bouncing through the doggy door at Anerson's home in Carlsbad. The dog jumped on Anderson's bed and woke up the stunned owner.

"I couldn't believe it," Anderson told the Union-Tribune. "I was thinking 'what?' 'How could this be?' 'Am I dreaming or is this really happening.'"

Oceanside veterinarian Luis Lizarraga checked out Georgia and told the Union-Tribune that for what the dog endured – predators, auto traffic, a torrential rainstorm and noise from Fourth of July fireworks – Georgia was a great shape.

"I've heard of dogs doing things like this but I've never seen it before," said Lizarraga. "She's very lucky, absolutely."

"I never thought I would see her again," Anderson told KFMB-TV. "She is really special to me. I think it's important for people not to give up."
