Robinson’s hometown was not immediately disclosed.

The East Oregonian reports that Brian Stewart sent his sons back to camp to fetch a sled last Saturday. They loaded the dog and took him back to their camp, where he was able to eat and drink. Then they put him in a tent and turned up the portable heater. The Stewarts are now trying to find the dog’s owner.
