A dog crosses 240 km of snow in Alaska before being reunited with his family

A polar bear or seal bite has traveled more than 240 kilometers on the frigid waters of the Bering Sea: The Australian Shepherd had a great adventure before he was reunited with his family in Alaska, safe and sound.

The 1-year-old Nanuk, who lives in Gamble, Alaska, went missing last month while his family was visiting Savonga on the north coast of St. Lawrence Island in the Bering Strait, the Associated Press reported.

The latter decides to explore the surroundings with the family’s other dog, named Starlight, before disappearing into the wilderness together. If Starlight can find its way back a few weeks later, Mandy O’Regan and her family haven’t had any news of their little Nanuk, according to information fromAnchorage Daily News.

However, about a month later, residents of the Alaskan village of Wells, located 241 kilometers northeast of Savonga, began posting photos of a lost dog.

“My dad texted me saying ‘There’s a dog that looks like Nanook in Wales,’” Mandy O’Regan said. “I was like, ‘No way! This is our dog! What is he doing in Wales?

With the exception of a swollen leg from a “very large bite,” which may have been caused by a seal or a polar bear, the dog is doing just fine, she said.

Nanuk, which means “polar bear” in the Siberian Yupik language, was reunited with his family last week amid cheers of joy.

“I have no idea how he ended up in Wales. Maybe the ice moved around while he was hunting. I’m sure he ate seal scraps or caught seals. Maybe birds too. He eats our native food. He’s smart,” the woman continued.
