MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota family has been reunited with their German shepherd who was missing for two months and found roughly 200 miles away in Minnesota.

The dog named Bentley is back in the Bismarck area after he went missing in Dawson Oct. 9. He is skittish and has acquired health problems including pneumonia and an ear infection. A veterinarian tells his owner, Cindi Leach, he will heal after taking medication.

Leach says she spent part of every day trying to locate Bentley, who is also a service dog to help with depression. A Facebook post eventually connected her with Bryan Deike in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, who found Bentley and took care of him for about a month.

Leach says she plans to stay in touch with Deike and give him updates on Bentley’s recovery.
