A black-and-white poodle named Mona is going home to Oklahoma after spending six weeks lost in the western Maryland mountains.

Rancher Mike Miller, of Waurika, Okla., told The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown that he found the dog near Hancock on Tuesday, six weeks after she disappeared.

Miller had contracted with an animal-transportation company to ship the dog to his mother's home in Pennsylvania. He says Mona escaped at the Sideling Hill rest stop on Interstate 68.

The big break came last weekend when a local resident spotted Mona and called the phone number Miller had posted on fliers in the area.

He said Mona is in good health but he's changed his mind about sending her away. He's keeping the dog and giving his mom another pet.
