CORONADO, Calif. – A German Shepard puppy thought to be lost at sea after she fell overboard was found on San Clemente Island by the US Navy.
Luna, an 18-month-old dog, had been on a fishing boat when she went overboard, U.S. Navy officials said. She was missing and presumed dead for nearly five weeks.
One minute the puppy was there, then the next minute she was gone, the family had told officials.
US Navy staff was near Naval Auxiliary Landing Field on San Clemente Island when Luna approached them. She apparently swam 2 miles to the island and lived off the land for over a month.
Luna was flown to Naval Air Station North Island Wednesday afternoon where she was reunited with her family. Watch their reunion in the video (above).
