ANTHEM, Ariz. (KPNX) - A lost puppy missing for more than two months in the Arizona desert was finally found late Monday night north of Anthem, Arizona.
One-year-old Ily ran off Interstate 17 after a car crash seriously injured the dog's owner and killed another dog in the vehicle in early June.
At one point a group of volunteers combed the rough terrain looking for Ily but no luck.
That was until about a week ago, when Ily was spotted about three miles from where the accident happened.
Using bait and a cage, Ily was eventually apprehended.
Ily, who previously weighed around 55 pounds, now only weighs about 30 pounds.
Sharman says other than the weight loss and dehydration, the puppy is in good shape.
