A dog in Minnesota is back home with his owners after being missing in the wilderness for 29 days. Zane Brunette and Max McKernan were exploring the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Northeastern Minnesota with their labrador retriever mix, Luigi, when they got separated from their dog. They desperately searched for Luigi for hours and even camped out for three days in the spot where he went missing, but had no luck finding their fur baby.
More than four weeks later and 30 miles from the spot where Luigi went missing, Marit Warren spotted a scruffy dog near her family’s cabin and reported the sighting to the Cook County Sheriff's Office. Fortunately, officers there recognized Luigi from flyers and social media posts about the missing pup.
Thanks to Marit, Luigi was reunited with his grateful owners and is now back home. He apparently had a pretty rough month and was missing a few toenails and was about 25 pounds lighter. No one but Luigi knows what he endured in the wilderness, but we know for sure that he’s a survivor.
