According to an update on their GoFundMe page yesterday, Jacob (Jake) Dalbey has now seen images of his lost dog Ullr, captured using trail cameras, after being separated for 11 months by an avalanche which struck them as they walked near Chair Mountain in the Rockies.

The dog Ullr apparently escaped but was separated by dangerous unstable and cracked snow, while Jake was not immediately able to return to the mountain owing to frostbite and surgery.
