Pitbull Who Disappeared in Texas Floods Found 2000 Miles Away

A dog who became separated from his owners during floods in Texas this spring has been found alive and well more than 2,0000 miles from home.

Thor the pit bull disappeared after the Hurtado family escaped their home after the banks of the Blanco River in Texas broke in the spring.

The family were forced to leave their three dogs at home as they evacuated the area. They returned to find that two of the animals were safe, but that Thor was nowhere to be seen.

Then, in September a police officer in Crescent City, California, found a stray pit bull wandering the streets.

The officer took him to an animal shelter where staff were able to identify and track down Thor's owners through a microchip the dog was wearing.

It is not known what happened to Thor in those intervening months, or how he reached California.

The Hurtado family, who are still repairing the damage to their home caused by the flood, were initially unable to afford the $1,500 it would cost to ship Thor back, CBS Dallas Fort Worth reported.
