Texas Dog Missing Since May Floods Found in California



    Floods Strand Dog For A Second Time

    A dog that disappeared from Texas during May flooding has turned up in California, but flood waters are once again keeping him away from home. KIEM's Samantha Bredesen reports. (Published Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2015)

    The owners of a pit bull who disappeared during flooding in Texas in May are puzzled as to how the animal ended up more than 2,000 miles away in northern California.

    Eddie Hurtado says Thor ran away after his family evacuated their San Marcos home that was overwhelmed by the swelling Blanco River during storms over Memorial Day weekend.

    Police found Thor wandering in Crescent City, California, in September and took him to the Del Norte County Animal Shelter, where workers used the microchip to identify him.

    Hurtado says he doesn't know how Thor got to California.

    Hurtado says he can't afford the estimated $1,500 to ship the dog home. A California trucker has volunteered to drive Thor back to San Marcos, 30 miles south of Austin.
