A family's dog that flew through a rear car window amidst a car crash was found on a farm two days after the accident, The Spokesman-Review reported, and he was trying to herd sheep.

Linda Oswald and her family were driving through Idaho on June 6 when a crash shattered her GMC Yukon's back window. Oswald's dog, Tilly, was ejected from the window and onto a nearby prairie, according to the same article.

Tilly left the crash shocked, unharmed, and lost in northern Idaho.

The Oswald family searched for Tilly for 10 hours that day, The Spokesman-Review reported. When they didn't find their dog, the family posted about Tilly on Facebook with a photo of him included. More than 3,000 shared the post.

Two days later, Zane Potter, a local farmer, found Tilly on his land, as The Spokesman-Review reported. Zane's brother Travis told The Spokesman-Review that he thinks Tilly was trying to herd sheep on the farm, and Oswald agreed.

"He'll herd anything," Oswald said. "When I go to the dog park, he tries to herd the people into one group."

When Zane found Tilly, a Kootenai County Sheriff's Office deputy was driving by looking for the dog. Zane gave Tilly over to the deputy, as The Spokesman-Review reported.

Zane told The Spokesman-Review that this isn't the strangest thing that's happened on the farm, adding that two helicopters have landed on the property in the past.

The first thing Tilly did when he finally made it home was drink from the toilet, and Oswald told The Spokesman-Review he's never done that before.
