(AP) – The dog, Molly, was presumed to have perished on Memorial Day when her owner, Doug Harmon of Scarborough, and another man drowned after their boat capsized on Chamberlain Lake.
But the dog was spotted at a number of places in the following weeks, and fliers offering a $200 reward for her return were placed at checkpoints in Maine’s North Woods.
The dog showed up at a Millinocket home on Saturday and was reunited with family members on Monday.
Eyewitness accounts suggest Molly traveled more than 200 miles while putting up with rugged terrain, thick black flies and evading predators such as coyotes.
The dog lost a lot of weight but is otherwise reported to be in good shape.
