Dave Kareken and his family from Asheville, North Carolina thought they had lost their dog Kali forever when she was swept away by rapids on a family hike in Canada. After an exhaustive search, he and his wife made the difficult decision to return home without her, thinking she probably did not survive.

“It was a brutal decision and it was really hard for us to leave,” says Dave. “My son, my wife and I were all in tears .”

Ten days later, Dave got a call that she was still alive and well!

When he saw her for the first time since the separation, he says he never experienced anything like it. “It’s like having somebody come back from the dead.”

Watch their emotional reunion in the video above.

To celebrate Kali’s safe return home Rach even donated a year’s worth of food from her petfood line, Nutrish! Here’s to a long and healthy life, Kali and family!
