Your good news of the day: A German Shepherd lost at sea and presumed dead five weeks ago was found alive on San Clemente Island Tuesday in a survival story fit for a “Lassie” episode.

Luna, a 1½-year-old, blue-eyed German Shepherd, was presumed to have died after falling overboard from a commercial fishing boat near San Clemente Island on Feb. 20, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

But miraculously, Luna appears to have swum ashore on San Clemente Island and survived for weeks on the island’s natural offerings. She was discovered on a roadside by Navy service members.

  1. The only navy personnel on San Clemente Island are SEALs and possibly some support personnel. I'm glad that she survived. I'm sure that the Navy fed her well.
