Hank, Lost Colorado Pup, Found After 60 Days in Wyoming Wilderness

FOX31 Denver

Hank, a rescue dog from Fort Collins, Colorado, is one lucky pooch.

The dog, owned by Travis and Tiffany Whitsitt, ran off while the family was on vacation in Wyoming in August.

After 30 days, the family began to realize that Hank might not come home. Then after 60 days, they received a call from Home Again Pet Services.

The Whitsitts spent hours at the campground searching for Hank, putting up missing posters on the trees.

All hope seemed lost until the phone call that Hank had been found only about an hour from the campground. A microchip implanted in Hank helped Home Again Pet Services find the Whitsitts.

The dog lost 20 pounds during his absence but managed to survive. Bacteria in Hank’s digestive system show that he fed on either rabbits or rabbit poop.

Beyond that, no one knows how Hank survived, and the Whitsitts don’t care.They’re just happy to have Hank back home.
