LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — A Maryland family’s dog that jumped a fence and went missing on a holiday trip to Maine has been found after surviving more than a week of sub-zero temperatures and severe winter storms.

Pure joy is what Jamie Cyrway and her three children say they are feeling after the community of North Anson searched for and found 1-year-old Dempster in an old saw mill last week. The family returned to Maine over the weekend to be reunited with their beloved pet.

“For days, you know, we stayed in Maine and that’s, that’s all our visit was about,” Cyrway said. “From Dec. 28 until Jan. 1 we were out looking for this dog, I mean, in snowshoes, in the woods.”

But when it was time to go home, Dempster still hadn’t been found.

“Leaving Maine without him was just heartbreaking,” Cyrway said. “And the community has just pulled together and got my baby back.”

The boxer has a broken leg, an injury he sustained when he was hit by a car. Luckily, the driver reported the incident, which helped the town search party locate him.

Cyrway says the whole ordeal has made her think that, “if you believe with all your heart, you’ll never be disappointed.”
