Bobbie the Wonder Dog

Bobbie the Wonder Dog is buried at the Oregon Humane Society in Portland Oregon. In 1923, the scotch collie became famous for finding his way home to Silverton, Oregon after being lost in Indiana. Six months to the date, Bobbie returned to his master's home after traveling almost 2,800 miles alone. He was featured in newspapers, books and even silent films.
