Puppy was presumed dead after falling off a fishing boat

Puppy was presumed dead after falling off a fishing boat
Luna, a German shepherd, went missing at sea on Feb. 10, and was presumed dead for nearly five weeks, reports NBC.

A puppy thought to be dead for five weeks after she fell off a fishing boat in Southern California was joyfully reunited with her owner in San Diego Thursday night after being rescued by the Navy.

Commercial fisherman Nick Haworth embraced Luna, his blue-eyed 1 ½-year-old German shepherd, as she jumped into his arms, tail wagging.

"Luna!" Haworth squealed, as the pup pranced around him.

Haworth scooped her up, rubbed her belly and gave her a big kiss.

"She still smells like fish," Haworth told NBC 7 with a smile. "I can't believe this dog is alive. I never thought I'd see her again."
"I'm just glad to have her home," he added.

Prior to their reunion, the last time Haworth saw his beloved companion was Feb. 10. That day, very early in the morning, Haworth, Luna and his crew were out on a commercial fishing boat about two miles off the coast of San Clemente near Naval Auxiliary Landing Field San Clemente Island (SCI).

Luna vanished as Haworth and his crew were bringing in their fishing traps. Haworth said one minute his pup was there and the next she was gone.

This past Tuesday, March 15, Navy staff spotted Luna on a road on SCI. Just as her owner had hoped, the pup had somehow managed to make it ashore. She ran right up to the Navy personnel.

Haworth said Luna is a bit skinny, but he wasn't surprised by her slender figure since the pup likely had to forage for food on the island.

Next time Luna accompanies him on a fishing boat, Haworth said he will be sure to outfit her with a doggie life jacket and a reflector so he can keep an eye on her. He may also keep her on a leash while at sea.
