Teen Canoeists Rescue Lost Dog in MN's BWCA

Posted: Updated:

TOFTE, Minn. (AP) - Some Minnetonka High School students have rescued a lost dog in northern Minnesota's Boundary Waters Canoe Area. 

The five teens were on a canoe trip this week when they saw a note scrawled on a rock at their island campsite, saying "Lost dog, call DNR." 

The boys soon spotted Tomah, the lost Shetland sheepdog. The teens, all cross-country runners, tried chasing the dog, but Tomah was too fast. 

The teens spotted the dog the next morning and grabbed him. With the dog in the canoe, they paddled to meet one of the boys' dads, who drove them to the U.S. Forest Service ranger station in Tofte, where there was a sign with Tomah's name and his owners' phone number.
