The dog's future, despite a spectacular individual effort, is not yet assured. He joins a gallery of rescues at Compassion Without Borders - all of them looking for a home.
Sometime between Christmas and the New Year, this still-to-be-named dog will take an even bigger step in that direction.
Along with around 24 Mexican rescues, he will arrive in California. There he will spend his days under quarantine with a foster family.
By then he'll no longer be a dog without a name. "We had a voting contest on Facebook for his name, " Camblor explains. "There was Einstein."
There was Navigator. And there was Boomer. Short for Boomerang.
Because he came back.
And hopefully, by then, he will no longer be a dog without a family.
This dog went to great lengths to rescue himself. Think you could meet him halfway and bring him to a real home?
