Stephen: Australian Shepherd dog returns home after 150 mile trip across Alaskan ice

An Australian shepherd finally returned to his Alaskan home after traveling across 150 miles of Bering Sea ice.
Mandy Iworrigan and her family were visiting Savoonga last month when their dog Nanuq disappeared. Then, a community 150 miles northeast of Savoonga began posting photos of the found dog.
Iworrigan saw the post on Facebook, and used her airline points to get Nanuq home. The pup is fine except for a swollen leg with bite marks, possibly from a seal or polar bear. “I have no idea why he ended up in Wales. Maybe the ice shifted while he was hunting,” Iworrigan said.
