Police Dog Went Missing In The Woods For A Week Before His Handler Found Him

New Zealand police dog Thames went missing during a search and rescue on the tops of the Tararua Ranges. His handler was not going to stop searching until he found him.

Via New Zealand Police:
“Thames was found early Sunday afternoon by his handler Constable Mike Wakefield and experienced volunteer searcher John McCann. Hungry, and a bit skinnier in the haunches after a week of foraging, Thames was fit enough to walk out to the Mt Holdsworth Road end about 5pm tonight, along with his very happy handler and the rest of the six person team.”

This is the moment they were reunited:
