Mr Weber told Seven News the dog didn't want to follow him to get water, so he decided to go on his own.

The dog belonging to Robert Weber, who survived being lost in bushland at Kilkivan in Queensland's Gympie region for 18 days , is found on the same property where her owner was discovered a week earlier. "We'd been keeping an eye out for the dog, thinking that we'd find it somewhere but it eluded us over that that period." The Bull Arab cross had been missing since January 6 and has lost a "significant" amount of weight but was otherwise OK. "No doubt it would have found a few things to eat, but certainly dropped some weight, but still quite well and strong," Mr Perrett said.

The couple said they kept an eye out for Nessie in case she followed, but they didn't expect to find her.

'It was only just sheer luck, our property is a 15,000 acre grazing property,' Mr Perret told The Courier-Mail.

'If we hadn't been mustering that property for another month, the reality is we would never have found Robert alive, we wouldn't have known he was in there.'

Mr Weber told rescuers he survived on wild mushrooms and drank dam water to survive and was treated for exposure.

He will be reunited with Nessie in coming days.
