A couple who lost their dog in a car crash between Revelstoke and the Nakusp Ferry will be reunited with their beloved pet thanks to a dog rescue group.

Late at night on Nov. 15, Mason Skulsh and his girlfriend Danae Robicheau hit a patch of black ice and veered into a ditch. Robicheau broke her leg and Skulsh suffered broken knuckles.

After the crash they realized their 8-month-old Great Pyrenees puppy named Daisy was not in the car and nowhere to be found.

The couple put the word out on social media and after a few days Daisy was spotted by a volunteer coordinated by the Missing Dog Response Team.

“Daisy went missing after a car accident. She showed up back where she last saw mom and daddy and was picked up. She is happily playing with her new friend while waiting for family to arrive,” the Missing Dog Response Team said on social media.

Missing Dog Response Team posted a video of Daisy playing with another dog, uninjured and happy.

Robicheau and Skulsh both needed surgery after the crash, but are reunited with Daisy and on their way home from the hospital to recover, according to Missing Dog Response Team on social media.
