- FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - Blind and alone in temperatures that dipped 40 degrees below zero, a lost 8-year-old Fairbanks dog wasn't given much of a chance to make it home. But after walking 10 miles to the edge of a local musher's dog yard, Abby the brown-and-white mixed breed was found and returned to her owners, a family that includes three boys under the age of 10. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports the dog went missing during a snowstorm on Dec. 13.  Musher Mark May says he came across the dog while running his team on Wednesday, but didn't stop to pick her up. The next day, the dog turned up at May's house. The community used social media to track down Abby's owners.
