Jasmine, dachschund/beagle mix

Jasmine - Georgia
Told to FindToto
Lost: 8/11/2011, Found: 8/18/2011

Our home was broken into while we were at work on Thursday, Aug 11. I walked into an empty house and open door, but no dog.

The material things didn't matter until we found Jasmine.

Our total efforts included 300 fliers, 8 highway signs, 2 missing dog alerts, multiple trips to the shelters and calls to vets, tips from the community, advice from a pet detective and viewing surveillance video at the corner of where she was picked up.

All we knew was two women in a silver Scion XB picked her up at 8:30 that night after she had been seen running for hours on the nearby busy, Atlanta highway.

While we tirelessly worked to find Jasmine, her good Samaritans took her to Roanoke for the weekend and then back to their home in Decatur.

They had just moved into the city and had no internet or cable during the time we were working with local news channels and social media.

Our friend Megan was posting some of our signs in Decatur when a silver Scion XB with two women in it stopped to ask about the sign. Megan immediately knew and when she told the women Jasmine was a Dachshund/Beagle mix, they knew too.

I got the frantically happy phone call and rushed over to pick up my baby almost instantly!

Jasmine is laying next to me resting in our home again and I couldn't be happier.

I know we are one of the lucky ones and I'm grateful for it!
