BOISE, IDAHO» A lost Boise dog is back home af­ter nine months and a bru­tal win­ter alone in the Idaho moun­tains. Mo, an el­derly Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Re­triever, wan­dered away from her own­ers dur­ing a hunt­ing trip in Septem­ber.

Dar­win and Cindy Cameron stayed near the tiny ham­let of Horse­shoe Bend, about 30 miles north of Boise, for three months look­ing for Mo. But deep snow and harsh con­di­tions even­tu­ally made the search im­pos­si­ble.

Dog res­cuer Cheri Glan­kler took in a starv­ing re­triever that had col­lapsed at a nearby ranch last month, the Idaho States­man re­ported. Based on the dog’s ini­tial di­sheveled ap­pear­ance, it was clear that she had been liv­ing on her own in the wild, Glan­kler said. She posted pho­tos of the dog on Face­book, and word quickly reached the Camerons that Mo may have been found.

The Camerons rec­og­nized her through her man­ner­isms and other dis­tinc­tive de­tails.

Mo was reunited with her own­ers last month in Gar­den Val­ley, Idaho, af­ter nine months alone in the moun­tains.
