Nearly two weeks after the deadly mudslide in Oso, Wash., a lost and injured dog named Boomer was found wandering the debris field.

Boomer wandered into the debris field from his home two or three miles away, although previous reports suggested he had survived the tragedy. He was found Wednesday night by two people searching for their own missing dog, KING 5 Seattle reported.

Here's a photo of Boomer tweeted by the station:

KING 5 later noted that the dog was not a victim of the mudslide.

Boomer, a golden retriever, has cuts on his arms and legs and hip problems, according to the station. He's currently being cared for at a local veterinary clinic, where he is in stable condition.

John Langeler, a reporter for the station, sent out a second photo of Boomer via Twitter:

Boomer's previous owner was killed in the mudslide, but had given the dog to his sister, who is now caring for him.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this article stated that Boomer survived the mudslide. He actually wandered to the area after the disaster occurred.
