The search for Lucas the cavoodle, who'd been missing in bush near Wainuiomata since last Friday is over.
The dog was found on a public street some way from where members of the local community who'd raised thousands of dollars to fund the search had been looking.
Caller Campbell told Marcus Lush he was involved in the search.
He says the dog covered a lot of territory to get to where he was found.
"No one can believe how he got over to the spot, given the size of him and the steepness of the terrain, so we really are quite amazed at where he ended up."
