A dog believed drowned in Kamloops, B.C.’s Thompson River, Canada, returned home last week in a recovery being described as something of a miracle.
Sammie-Marie, a two-year-old Boston terrier cross, had just been adopted by Joshua Knaak and his partner on January 11 when she escaped out his front door as he was returning home from work.
The following day, Knaak received news that made his heart drop.
Sammie-Marie had once again been seen along the river but was spooked by a passing vehicle.
She then ran out onto the frozen river and vanished from sight.
“You could see the tracks,” Knaak said. “They went about halfway out the river and disappeared.”
Then, exactly two weeks after Sammy-Marie first disappeared, Knaak received an unexpected phone call from the city’s community services line.
“They said, ‘We think we have your dog. Hiding under a boat.’”
