Two days after Christmas, a 48-year-old woman from Salt Lake City got in a car accident in the Nevada desert. Her husband and one of her dogs were killed, and she suffered serious injuries.
Her other dog ran into the desert.
She recovered a couple months later, and a Facebook campaign managed to reunite her with her OTHER dog, who had survived 53 days in the desert by eating roadkill and finding sourses of water.
The dog named Dooley survived for nearly two months by eating roadkill and finding random sources of water.
His weight dropped from 44 pounds to 20 pounds, and vets had to remove a bird bone from his throat.
