Pictured Rocks
Amanda Barberena

A Farmington Hills couple is celebrating Christmas with their one-eyed dog that was found seven days after it disappeared in the forests of Pictured Rocks National Lake Shore in the Upper Peninsula.

MLive reports that the husky mix named Ein was tagging along Dec. 15 as its owners Sarah Cortez and Alex Beyer when it vanished

The couple called searched for hours that day and the next and Beyer even grilled burgers in the hopes that the scent might draw Ein out of the woods.

On Dec. 22, Mike Saunders and Becca Gabrys were driving in the area on Dec. 22 when they spotted the dog and scooped it up. Calls to the numbers on the dog's tags connected them to a rescue group that called Cortez and Beyer.
