A dog missing since the Camp Fire in California was found 101 days later, and is believed to have survived on his own by hunting skunks. The Ballejos family tells KXTV that their Akita, named Kingston, jumped out of the back of their pickup trunk when they were evacuating their home in Paradise last year. The family never lost hope, posting flyers, contacting shelters and searching on their own. Volunteers contacted them after trapping Kingston on Sunday and taking him to Friends of Camp Fire Cats, a local rescue that saw Ballejos' missing dog message. "When I found out, it just about brought me to tears," Gabriel Ballejos admits. "I'm so proud of him. I can't believe it. He's a true survivor, and it's a testament to the American spirit." Even after being washed, Kingston still unfortunately reeks of skunk. Friends of Camp Fire Cats has rescued more than 200 lost pets since the fire and says it could still trap 50 animals "every single night" if it had the resources.
