Murphy the golden retriever disappeared from a Braun family camping trip out in California’s Tahoe National Forest to years ago, but now, that’s all over.
She went missing in October 2012, yet was found alive this June 2014 by a camper who found the dog just miles from where she was first reported missing.
From the Braun’s Facebook post:
After 20 long months of being in the Tahoe National Forest, Murphy has come home. As you can imagine we are completely shocked and amazed with the miracle of her surviving this long. We responded to a call from a couple who spotted a dog matching her description in an area within 5 miles of where we lost her. After multiple days looking for her without success, we left her bed and our clothing behind with the campground host, in the hopes that she would respond. A week went by and we got a call from the campground host who was able to coax her into a kennel after she had been sleeping every night on the blanket and clothing that was left behind. We were reunited with Murphy, on Sunday afternoon – Father’s Day! She is on the road to recovery, very thin and frail but happy to be home with her family. We have so many people to thank the list is endless. Words can not describe how grateful we are.
Murphy, although thin and frail, was happy to see her family. The Brauns have since vowed to never lose Murphy again.
