KUSA - A dog stranded for nearly a month in Clear Creek Canyon is still waiting for her owners after being rescued Thursday.
The Clear Creek County Animal Shelter says she is doing well and they have named the dog Willow.
They will continue to take care of her and feed her to make sure she gets her weight back up.
A Clear Creek County Animal Control officer had to wade across Clear Creek to get to the chow. Animal control said she's about 15 pounds underweight but otherwise in good health.
The chow was originally spotted Oct. 5 on the shoreline of Clear Creek, but she had no access across.
She was again spotted on other occasions the past couple of weeks. Someone had even put up a Craigslist post asking for help rescuing the dog.
She presumably survived on what she could find to eat in the wild.
The dog has no microchip or other ID, and is being checked out by a vet. She'll be on a five day stray hold. If no one claims her, she'll be spayed and put up for adoption.
It's not known how the dog got stranded.
