The castaway dog returns home


A dog, thought to have drowned in shark infested waters, has been found safe and well on a remote Australian island.

The cattle dog was washed overboard in rough seas off the coast of Queensland last year.

But the canine castaway was eventually discovered by rangers, more than 4 months after she was given up for dead.

Nick Bryant reports.
