A 30-pound dog reportedly survived a harrowing flip of a boat in an Alaska river and then a four-day ordeal without food as she remained trapped in the small craft.

Boat owner Jeremy McDonald reached his damaged boat May 30 on the Chena River and heard noises inside, he told the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner.

"It was crazy," McDonald, 34, said. "I get to the side of the boat, look in there and she barks and growls at me."
