“We'd have sightings of Connor in the area so we'd camp out overnight to try and find him.”

The family never gave up hope that Connor would return, with Thomson telling her boys to look for the dog during their regular trips to their farm.

“We never gave up hope,” she told the West Australian newspaper. “Every time we'd go to the farm we'd say to the boys, 'Keep an eye out for Connor, he could have traveled.'”

<h1>But some 210 days later, after enduring many freezing winter nights and searingly hot summer days, a thinner and scruffier Connor turned up on a farm on Saturday more than 20 miles from where the family last saw him.</h1>
