Dogs are excellent swimmers, but can they survive for weeks without any help from humans? Everyone had lost hope and believed that this German Shepherd already passed away after weeks of waiting. However, dogs will surprise you when you least expect them to.
Read the amazing story of Luna the German Shepherd below.
Luna is only a year old, and she fell from a fishing boat at the Pacific Ocean five weeks ago.
Luna's owner named Nick Hayworth was a fisherman who reported that Luna was missing on February 10 near the San Clemente Island.
Because of the accident, Luna was sadly presumed dead.
Surprisingly, Luna was found today by Navy officials. She was very much alive.
The San Clemente Island she was located in was about 80 miles away from the coast of San Diego in California.
Nick Hayworth noted that Luna was a powerful swimmer who could readily go to the shore.
Navy officials noted that Luna had no other domesticated companions during the five weeks she went missing.
Luna's owner was on a lake when he received the update. He had to move a lot just to get the message properly.
According to the biologist from the San Diego Zoo, Luna was a bit undernourished but she was overall still healthy.
Apparently, the German Shepherd ate mice on the island while she was away. Welcome back, Luna!
