Golden Retriever Lost for 20 Months is home Safe!

This father’s day was an extra special day for the Braun family of El Dorado Hills, CA. In October of 2012, Murphy, their female golden retriever, was lost during a camping trip to Hell Hole Reservoir. The Braun family posted flyers and started a Facebook page

It appears that Murphy may have lived on roadkill and campers scraps and survived two cold winters in the Tahoe National Forest. There also seem to have been several sightings of the dog over the last two years, but no one could capture her.

This past months some campers contacted the Brauns after seeing the dog near their campsite. On June 7th, the Brauns brought one of Murphy’s blankets and Nathan’s baseball hat to camp host Jason Smith. That same night, after laying out the belongings, Murphy appeared and curled up on them. (how sweet is that?)

Eventually they were able to get a leash on Murphy, even though she was very skittish and took awhile to warm up to the fact that she was safe.

Finally this past Sunday, the Braun family, including their three children were reunited with their pet.  According to a story from News10.net, they are 99 percent sure the dog is Murphy, and are just waiting on DNA results.
