A family's beloved pet has been reunited with them after spending weeks in Grand Canyon National Park alone, reported FOX 10 Phoenix.

The pup's long-awaited return home is being credited all to a social media post and two dog rescue groups.

Amy Goodwin posted about the stranded dog on social media on January 31st.

President and founder of Yavapai Humane Trappers, Katrina Karr, partnered with Northern Arizona Animal Search & Rescue's Teresa Schumann to respond.

Karr stated, "Saying that she seen a husky dog at the Grand Canyon up at Hermit's Rest. The pictures that she posted, the dog was definitely scavenging."

Karr, along with her team, tracked the dog over several days, but lost sight of her a few times.

She said, "Usually dogs stay in an area where they are fed in. They'll keep coming back to the feeding station. This wasn't the case. We've seen it before where they gained enough energy where they left the area."

The team finally regained sight of her and set a trap. They were able to rescue the dog on February 5th and reunite her with her family.

The husky's name is Sky and she's three-years-old.

Karr said, "They were so happy that she was home. They re-did the whole fence line so that she won't be getting out anymore."
