Set against the magnificent backdrop of the Yellowstone National Park wilderness, Bring Jade Home is a gripping true tale of loss, the bond between people and animals, and the power of redeeming love.
David Sowers and Laura Gillice are seriously injured in a head-on collision while vacationing in the Park with their dogs. When they are ambulanced away, David’s fifteen-month-old Australian shepherd, Jade, bolts into the over two-million-acre wilderness and disappears. The young dog faces the threats of starvation, predators, and the hostile landscape of Yellowstone itself.
The day after the wreck, critically injured David leaves the Trauma Center in a desperate effort to find his beloved dog. Eventually an enormous search effort is launched, spearheaded by Park employee Kat Brekken and fueled by social media. Previously, the longest a dog was lost and found alive in Yellowstone was two weeks. As each passing day breaks that record, Jade is occasionally spotted. Against all the odds, the young Aussie is alive.
Bring Jade Home is a heartwarming tale of a dog whose trials bring out the generosity of spirt and the best in people.
