After nearly losing all hope, the dog owner has reunited with his 7-year-old furry companion after she was lost in the Montana wilderness for seven days.

His friend spotted the dog along the Yellowstone River somewhere between Shepard and Huntley, and he could have sworn it was Salty. So Roger hurried to check if it really was his faithful dog.
Roger’s daughter filmed the reunion with her cell phone and the moment is touching.
“Finally she heard me and ran to me. And I whistled so loudly and walked in the snow, and I was so happy, and she was very happy and cold,” the man said. “You know, we had a good meeting by the river! »
