PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A stray dog now as a new home after a Portland couple rescued and adopted her while on vacation in Hawaii.

While vacationing in Kauai a few weeks ago, Brian Shahum and his wife stumbled across an injured dog while driving down a road.

Shahum said the dog had a deep gash in her side. The couple took her to the vet where she underwent surgery.

Veterinarians believe the dog had been attacked by a wild boar.  

Unable to get their new four-legged friend out of their minds, the Shahums adopted the dog a few days later and made arrangements to transport her back to Portland.

They named her Island Pearl.
