The dog wandered away from home during a big snowstorm last week. The family feared they'd never see their pet again, since she was lost as temperatures fell to 40 below zero. The local newspaper reports the dog's nose led her to the home of a vet, who posted her picture on Facebook.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne with something of a Christmas miracle. A blind dog wandered away from home during a big snowstorm last week in Alaska. The family feared they'd never see their pet again, since she was lost as temperatures fell to 40 below zero. But the short-haired mutt survived. Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports her nose led her to the home of a vet, who posted pictures on Facebook. And on Christmas Eve, Abby was back in the arms of her owners. It's MORNING EDITION.
