OSO, Wash., April 4 (UPI) -- A dog found Thursday at the site of the deadly Washington landslide may have actually ended up there on purpose.

The golden retriever, Boomer, was treated for injuries to his leg and hip, but the dog didn’t get hurt in the natural disaster.

According to a report from King 5, Boomer walked three miles to get to the landslide, the area where his former owner was last seen.

The loyal pooch is now cared for by the former owner’s sister. She confirmed to King 5 that her brother is still missing.

There have already been 30 confirmed deaths and at least 15 people are still missing after the March 22 landslide in Oso.

Boomer is “doing well” at an Arlington veterinary clinic.
