HILL, N.H. — A New Hampshire family has been reunited with its dog almost a year after the pet went missing.

WMUR-TV reports the retriever named Beowolf disappeared in May when he got spooked and ran into a wooded area in Hill.

The volunteer organization Granite State Dog Recovery received a call about Beowolf in January but he got away. The recovery team continued to search for the dog as temperatures plummeted.

They eventually located Beowolf and were able to coax him with hot dogs and Meaty Marrow Bones. Granite State Dog Recovery says the hardy pooch had no signs of injury or frostbite.

Beowolf was returned to his family on Tuesday. The group wrote in a Facebook post that dog owners should “never give up” if their pets go missing.
