The dog's family thought their pet had drowned. However, the dog managed to swim five miles to St. Bees Island -- a tropical island that's largely uninhabited.

Sophie was able to survive for four months by eating baby goats and koalas.

The dog was eventually discovered by park rangers and returned to her relieved family.
