Tennessee Man Reunited With Dog In Kentucky
Reporter: Rachel Markin
Updated: 1:14 AM Feb 26, 2012

It happened after a Tennessee man traveled to Bowling Green to reunite with his dog after 1 year of separation.

Animal Rescue Corps found the dog with 95 others at the Grave's County raid, a story we've been following closely.

"It was a magical thing, and we were all crying," says Lorri Hare.

Lorri Hare's eyes are still tearing up at the thought of Andy Winn reuniting with his beloved dog, Buddy.

"From the way the owner and the dog were reacting, you knew before you saw the photos that was his dog, and the dog knew that was his owner," says Hare.

Hare runs the Bowling Green Humane Society and helped rescue the 96 dogs from the deplorable conditions at a supposed Grave's County "animal rescue" organization.

"We are under the assumption that several were stolen, several had maybe ended up in shelters," says Hare.

"I think someone stole them, exactly," says Andy Winn.

Winn, who traveled to Bowling Green's Humane Society from Clarksville, Tennessee to retrieve his long-lost pet, says Buddy and another one of his dogs named Lucy were taken from his property.

"I remember seeing a white truck passing me by and thinking it didn't see quite right, and than one or two days later when my dogs still weren't found I knew someone had taken them," says Winn.

The Tennessean first believed Buddy was one of the rescued animals when he watched a local news channel's video of the dogs.

Winn says a dark spot around the dog's eyes is what identified him as the "one".

"He was in worse condition than when I last had him..scratches..scars..bruises," says Winn.

Unfortunately Lucy is still no-where to be found and Winn worries that because she was older, she may not have made it through the harsh conditions in Grave's county.

Lisa Henderson at the Humane Society says it's heartbreaking to think some of the dogs that were abused and lost their lives at the Grave's county "rescue organization" might have been taken from loving homes.

"Its so sad because obviously these dogs have families who are looking for them and missing them and why someone would steal someone else dog its just heartbreaking to think of the dogs going through that and owners also," says Henderson.

Two of the 26 dogs rescued dogs brought to Bowling Green's Humane Society have been retrieved by their original owner. The organization says anyone who suspects their dog might have been stolen can contact Animal Rescue Corps for more information.

Chassis, husky

Stray Duluth dog covered 300 miles in seven weeks, owners say
By: Jana Hollingsworth, Duluth News Tribune
February 24, 2012
The husky belonging to a rural Duluth family ran away New Year's Day and ended up in southern Minnesota.

How a husky named Chassis could travel from rural Duluth to a hair’s breadth of the Iowa border, her owners will never know, but that’s what they believe happened.

The 1½-year-old dog broke loose from her chain late New Year’s Day. On Saturday, a family in Taopi, Minn., almost 300 miles south of Duluth, took in a dog matching Chassis’ description. On Tuesday, the dog was home in Lakewood Township.

“Their natural instinct is to run,” said Teresa Musel, who, with her husband, Nick, owns the husky. “She loves to run.”

And although Chassis had escaped before, sometimes for hours, she always returned home until that day.

The Musels’ journey to find Chassis was a long one, beginning with lengthy searches via foot, snowmobile, truck and four-wheeler in the woods and roads of rural Duluth and beyond. Through posters and Facebook postings, dozens of tips poured in for Chassis sightings, none of which proved fruitful.

“We would drop what we were doing every time we got a lead,” Musel said. “We spent endless hours driving around.”

Weeks into Chassis’ disappearance, Musel heard from a Cloquet woman, also missing a husky, who had seen a Craigslist post for a dog found in southern Minnesota. Musel contacted the poster, and the two exchanged photos and information about the dog, culminating in a Skype session that gave Musel enough certainty to make the five-hour drive to be sure.

“I prepared myself for it to not be her,” Musel said. “When I got out of the car she jumped up and put her paws on my chest and looked at me, and licked my face. I just knew it was her.”

Brenda Kiefer’s family took the husky in after she had been hanging around their property.

“It was the last thing I expected when this woman called from Duluth,” Kiefer said, because of the good health of the dog and the distance she supposedly traveled.

“People could have fed her along the way,” she guessed. “She went crazy when she saw her blanket and pillow.”

Musel had brought both along on the trip. The dog had the same red collar as Chassis, the same patch of bare skin on her leg and similar features and mannerisms. And she wouldn’t let Musel out of her sight. One feature, a difference in the white stripe on her nose, almost stopped the couple from deciding to make the trek. But after consulting with dog experts, they learned coloring can change in the course of a young dog’s life, Musel said.

The dog’s body and coat were thinner, with thorns stuck to her matted fur and a strong skunk smell. Her energy level is low and she’s eating and drinking water “constantly” now that she’s home, Musel said.

As for her mannerisms, “she seems a little disconnected,” she said. “Whatever she went through … the stress and the trauma, you can tell she is still trying to figure things out.”

Kevin Holubar was a Central High School classmate of Musel’s. His bulldog, Ham, went missing near Duluth in 2010 and was found 11 days later and 30 pounds lighter.

“Not very many people can say, ‘I know what you’re feeling,’ ” Holubar said. “The good thing with a husky is, it’s a dog that can handle being outside for a long period of time, and it’s a mild winter. They had lots of things in their favor.”

Chassis was micro-chipped on Thursday and the Musels have plans for a GPS collar.

“I have no idea how she got that far,” Musel said, “but I really think her instincts probably kicked in as a husky, as far as hunting. You want to know the story, and I don’t think we ever will. But I am overjoyed.”

Bob Bo, golden retriever

Dog Seized In Kentucky Reunited With Owners In Nashville
Posted: Feb 22, 2012
by Chris Cannon

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Mark and Cheryl Jobe made the three hour trip from Wingo, KY to Nashville Wednesday for a reunion with their dog Bo Bo who disappeared more than a year ago.

The Jobes live not too far from the home of Shannon Lacewell. Last week members of the Animal Rescue Corps seized nearly 100 dogs from her property.

Mark Jobe had seen a news report on the seizure and quickly noticed one of the dogs looked like his Golden Retriever.

Jobe tracked down someone from Animal Rescue Corps about the possibility it was his dog.

"I notified him by email and gave him some identifying marks on the dog and he called me today and said I got your dog. Come and get him," Mark Jobe said.

It was a BB lodged in Bo Bo's back leg that ultimately positively identified him as the Jobes' dog.

He told his wife and Wednesday afternoon the couple made the trip from Wingo to Nashville.

"I got to be ready for whatever's there, but I hope he's not real bad," Cheryl Jobe said as she waited for the reunion at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds.

When the Animal Rescue Corps truck pulled up and they opened the door, the Jobes new right away it was Bo Bo.

"That's him, that's him," said Mark Jobe.

"Come to mama," his wife said as she hugged the dog.

A typical operation for Animal Rescue Corps involve puppy mills, or hoarders. That was not the case in Wingo, KY.

"What we didn't know was some of these animals were actually owned by somebody else," said Scotlund Haisley.

It is not often he and his staff are able to witness the reunion of a dog with its owners.

"Today we get to bring a family back together. It's an incredibly rewarding day," Haisley said.

Bo Bo lost a lot of weight over the fifteen months he was missing. He does have some medical issues to overcome, but is expected to make a full recovery.

The dog left Nashville Wednesday night with two people who consider him family and never gave up hope for finding him.

Darla, border collie/shepherd mix

Dog reunited with family after six weeks missing
February 16, 2012

The Sousanis family is overjoyed after they were reunited with their dog Darla, who was lost for six weeks and had gone missing from their home just before Christmas. For Spiro Sousanis it was an emotional reunion. Darla has been Spiro's constant companion and loved and supported him through his recent health battles with diabetes and heart disease.

The six-year-old border collie cross German shepherd was found under a home in Smithfield, Australia last week. The resident who found her, had been leaving food out for her for weeks, but only realized the dog was sheltering under his home when his cat became "skittish" outside their house.

A friend showed him an article in the local newspaper about Darla, so the man phoned in, hoping the dog he had found was Darla.

"I had a strong feeling it could have been her before I went to his home," Spiro Sousanis said. Sousanis had been canvassing his neighborhood for weeks and called the local pounds every day to check if they had found her. He sensed his dog was still in the area, but he didn't know where else to look.

“When I got there, I couldn’t see under the house and I just said: ‘Darla’ and when I saw her head pop out I couldn’t believe it. I cried ‘oh my god, it’s my baby’,” he said.

Darla had a traumatic few weeks under the house, which was dark, wet and muddy. But other than having lost some weight, Darla got a clear bill of health from the vet. Said Sousanis: "To think she was just no more than a kilometre and half away from us; we drove past and walked past this house so many times. Bless the kindness of strangers. She isn’t just our pet, Darla is family."

Beijing man reunited with his lost dog seven years later
February 11, 2012

While attending the Lantern Festival, a young Beijing man who had lost his dog seven years ago, said he stumbled across the dog accidentally.

"I began to raise this dog in 2003. One day, after dinner, we went out for a walk and I lost him. That was two years after, in 2005. Since then, I haven’t kept any pets," said the man, who posted his story to an online forum.

He recounts their reunion: "Today [February 6], on my way home, I stopped my motorcycle in front of the traffic lights. There was a homeless dog that looked just like my lost dog Benben".

Taking off his helmet, he whistled to him just like he did to Benben.

"The dog was stunned, and looked at me for at least three seconds, and then ran to me like crazy. My feelings were so mixed; I couldn’t help but cry."

He took a few pictures of their reunion before taking the dog home with him.

The seven years of homelessness had changed Benben.

"He used to be very picky with food, only eating rice with meat soup. But after getting back to our factory yard, the first thing he did was to search the garbage. Seeing this, I cried again," said Benben's owner.

After the man posted his story on his blog, hundreds of people commented on his news, most congratulating the two and expressing how emotional the tale had made them.

People in China believe that the Lantern Festival is also a time for reunion. This was certainly the case for this man and his dog.

Abby, border collie

Peninsula Pet Hospital helping lost dog return to South Carolina
Microchip helps to identify lost animal; funds needed for flight
Joan Cronk
Last updated: November 4th, 2011

Dr. Laura Waters saved Abby, a Border Collie, with donated medical services after the dog’s embedded microchip showed she’d been displaced from the East Coast. Waters hoped to find a donor to help pay for the costs of shipping the dog back to her rightful owners.

Dr. Laura Waters of Peninsula Pet Hospital believes in microchips for pets in case they are lost or stolen.

“The thing about microchipping is, if you want a good chance of getting your pet back, you’ll do it,” Waters said.

It was lucky for Abby, an energetic border collie with a keen sense of survival, that her original owner had one implanted right between her shoulder blades.

Microchips are small, about the size of a grain of rice, and they last a lifetime. A veterinarian can inject the chip, and if that animal turns up lost or stolen, a quick scan can reveal the owner as quick as a wink.

The cost is $39.95 if Peninsula Pet Hospital does the implant, and that includes the first-year fee to HomeAgain of $14.95.

HomeAgain maintains a database of all pets with the implant. The fee needs to be renewed each year.

The system worked four weeks ago when a citizen found Abby wandering and took her to Peninsula Pet Hospital in Gig Harbor.

Waters said the dog was bedraggled, covered in fleas and had numerous skin problems. When she scanned the animal, she found that the owner, Pete Olmeda, lived in South Carolina.

Olmeda said Abby had been missing since the end of 2009. He had reported the dog missing to HomeAgain, but there were no hits on the microchip.

Back in Gig Harbor, Abby needed care, and she needed it quickly.

The staff at Peninsula Pet Hospital treated the dog they described as a sweet little girl who loves everyone. She currently is receiving regular baths, and her skin is being treated with antibiotics. The fleas have flown the coop, but her skin is still sore and crusty, Waters said.

Abby goes for walks every day with members of the staff and receives a lot of love and attention. Now the challenge is to return Abby to South Carolina.

Olmeda, a Petty Officer 3rd Class in the U.S. Coast Guard, lives with his wife and two boys in Summerville, S.C. He couldn’t believe it when he learned that Abby had been found in Gig Harbor.

“When they told me Washington,” Olmeda said, “I said ‘Washington, D.C.? Gig Harbor is 2,946 miles from my house!”

Olmeda bought Abby from a breeder when she was a puppy and had just begun to train her when she disappeared. He plans to start up with the training as soon as she returns to South Carolina, which may be sooner than later.

Waters said Sunday that HomeAgain has donated $500 to fly Abby back to her rightful owners, and two of her clients have donated cash toward the flight as well. As soon as the health certificate is in order, she should be on her way.

Scooby, cocker spaniel

Lost dog reunited with owners after seven years
By James Figueroa, Staff Writer, sgvtribune.com
Posted: 02/15/2012

A lucky cocker spaniel has reunited with his owners after seven years, thanks to a microchip and a good grooming.

Scooby with the Pasadena Humane Society, before grooming. The cocker spanial was reunited with his family after seven years. owners, who don't speak English, needed help to respond to the letter sent by the Humane Society. Once they did, Scooby was happily sent home this month. The owners haven't been identified because the Humane Society keeps those records confidential.

Scooby, who was found as a stray in Arcadia on Jan. 17, wound up with the Pasadena Humane Society, according to spokeswoman Ricky Whitman.

His fur was heavily matted but otherwise Scooby seemed to be a healthy 9-year-old dog.

"He was really cute and had a wonderful temperament," Whitman said.

Workers scanned him for a microchip but found nothing. It wasn't until Pasadena grooming business My Pet Garden trimmed his fur that the chip was found and Scooby's home was identified.

"We scan periodically throughout an animal's stay," Whitman said.
The My Pet Garden groomer who handled Scooby felt certain there was something special about the dog.

"My wife and I prayed over the dog for him to get a home," said Shannon O'Donnell. "He was tugging like crazy trying to get somewhere. There was some urgency to what he was doing."

Whistler, Iditarod dog

German Iditarod rookie reunited with lost sled dog
Jill Burke
Feb 13, 2012

The Iditarod Sled Dog Trail Race is three weeks away, but rookie German musher Silvia Furtwangler already has one heck of a tale.

Last week, she noticed one of her dogs missing. This came hours after her plane touched down in Anchorage after she'd hauled herself and her dogs by car from Norway to Frankfurt, and, from there, by plane to Seattle and on to Anchorage where the team loaded up in a truck and headed for a training compound in Willow.

"Whistler," the sled dog from Germany who went missing hours after landing in Anchorage Thursday, strikes a pose for reporters after his reunion Monday with musher Silvia Furtwängler.

But when Furtwangler and her companions arrived in the small community North of Anchorage, she discovered her bright blue-eyed 3-year old named Whistler was gone. A venting screen had been punched out on one of the dog boxes mushers use to transport their teams, and Whistler was nowhere in sight. Word of the missing pooch spread quickly, and people began calling in sightings.

Most had spotted the distinct-looking dog along the Chester Creek greenbelt, which cuts through much of Midtown Anchorage, said Tracey Mendenhall, a friend of Furtwangler who helped organize a search. Whistler had been seen rolling in the snow and sprinting to and fro, but the marathon athlete conditioned to run nearly 1,000 miles remained elusive.

Furtwangler wasn't sure if she'd run the race without Whistler, the pup of a pound dog and a former Iditarod racer named Sharkie. By Monday morning, four days after he first went missing, someone finally caught up with Whistler. Employees of the Arc of Anchorage, located near the greenbelt and tucked into a quiet spot near the busy intersection of Northern Lights Boulevard and Bragaw Street, spotted the dog.

"I saw his eyes and I knew it was him," said Charlene Oliver, the Arc employee who eventually coaxed Whistler to safety, even though she was mistakenly calling him Whisper. "He has beautiful eyes."
Another Arc employee, Danny Parish, actually spotted Whistler hanging around the parking lot on Sunday, but didn't think much of it until he saw the same dog again Monday. He tried luring the dog with a few bites of enchilada. Parish said Whistler "really did love the enchiladas," but wanted nothing to do with him.

With Oliver, it was a different story. Whistler was skittish but more receptive. Oliver made a trail out of hard-to-resist food -- roast beef -- leading from the parking lot into a garage on the same lot. Once Whistler was inside, the staff closed the door on the dog's free-running spree. Oliver, a dog lover herself, then "loved, kissed and hugged," on him.

Furtwangler isn't surprised it took a woman's touch to get Whistler to come. She described him as a "mom dog," deeply attached to her. When the women first saw each other, they hugged and cried and Furtwangler thanked Oliver.

And for Whistler, Furtwangler played an iPhone clip of howling sled dogs from her team on speaker phone. Whistler may be a bit thinner than when he started his adventure, but otherwise he looked good. He'll get a day to rest and recover, but by Tuesday his pre-race training regime should resume.

As for Whistler's new choice of food, Furtwangler wondered if maybe it's not such a bad thing. Mushers often pack special treats to motivate their dogs when the race gets tough, and if Mexican food does the trick, so be it. "I am definitely sure I will have some Mexican food in the food drop now," she said.

Delsin, Bernese mountain dog

Missing show dog reunited with owner
9:17 AM, Jan 5, 2012

MINNEAPOLIS - He's not Lassie, but a notable Twin Cities dog did end up "coming home" after escaping from a backyard in Bloomington Tuesday.

Delsin, a 9-year-old Bernese Mountain Dog was reunited with his owner Wednesday afternoon. He is one of the oldest dogs in the history of the breed, and is scheduled to compete at the prestigious Westminster dog show in February.

Delsin was reported missing Tuesday night by his owner Anne Nichols after disappearing from the back yard of her nephew's home in Bloomington. A young child at the home at 102nd Street and Beard Ave. South accidentally left the gate open and the dog escaped wearing no collar. Delsin is also not microchipped.

Late Tuesday a Bloomington animal control officer spotted the big dog stuck between two fences, picked him up, and transported him to Minneapolis Animal Care and Control, where the city houses its animals.

Workers at the facility had heard about Delsin's escape, put two and two together, and called Bloomington police. Nichols and her prized dog were reunited about noon Wednesday.

Teddy, terrier

Teddy's Story
Told to Find Toto
Lost 2/4/12, Found 2/5/12

Teddy was lost on a Saturday afternoon from the stable in Maryland at which I worked. We realized he had just wandered too far, and though he knew his way around the farm, a sudden snow storm confused him and prevented him from finding his way back.

After over 30 hours of searching and worry, Teddy was found!

I received a call at about 9:30pm on Sunday from a kind gentleman who said Teddy had wandered onto his porch at around 1am on Saturday.

While Teddy had tags I had not realized the only phone number on them was for my husband, who is currently away serving in the Army. The gentleman had called several times, but (obviously) received no answer.

He finally found my number when he went to put a craigslist "found" ad up, and found my "lost" one.

I cannot stress enough the help I received from the tracking service "Dogs Finding Dogs". Their representative was an AMAZING help. She gave me the most efficient ways to find my dog, including craigslist, FindToto, and many many flyers. She also worked with me for over four hours searching for him with her dog over the several hundred acres and many miles that Teddy had traveled.

While FindToto was not the specific way Teddy was found, it was an invaluable asset, and just one more way to get the word out.

I'm so unbelievably relieved and happy to have my boy back. I know his "daddy" soldier will be too.

Zip, English setter

Lost three-legged dog reunited with owner after crossing state border
By Patrick Ronan, The Patriot Ledger
Posted Jan 11, 2012

Zip, a three-legged English setter, went missing during a hunting trip and traveled 30 miles south from a town in New Hampshire, crossing the state border into Massachusetts.

Zip, a three-legged English setter, got lost during a hunting trip in New Hampshire.

But the story ended happily when the 3-year-old dog was returned to his owner less than a week later thanks to a missing-dog alert system that is similar to the Amber Alert program for missing children.

Zip’s owner, a resident of North Hampton, N.H., was ecstatic to find out his dog was coming home.

“I will never forget the sound of those words echoing through the phone, ‘Dad, it’s him, it’s Zip!’” said Marshfield Animal Control Officer Deni Goldman, who is the founder of the SABERAlert system that helps reunite missing dogs with their owners.

Zip went missing Dec. 31 during a bird-hunting trip with his owner. On Jan. 4, a three-legged dog was found just off Interstate 95 in Peabody. The dog was transported to the Animal Rescue League in Dedham, where the shelter’s manager called Goldman, who is also the communications director for the Animal Control Officers Association of Massachusetts.

Two hours after Goldman issued a SABERAlert, she was contacted by a dog care provider in Newton who said she saw a missing-dog alert in New Hampshire that matched Zip’s description.

So Goldman got in touch with Zip’s owner later that night, and through an email exchange of photos, they confirmed that it was the same dog.

“This is why we developed the SABERAlert, and this is why we are so fortunate to have so many colleagues and affiliates across the state, and further, working with us,” Goldman said. “There is no better feeling than reuniting a family with their lost pet.”

The SABERAlert program sends missing-dog alerts to animal control officers throughout the state. The system has issued 633 alerts since its inception in 2006. About 34 percent of the missing dogs have been reunited with their owners, Goldman said.

Lucky, diabietic hound

Delight as missing diabetic dog is found
Hartlepool Mail
Published on Tuesday 10 January 2012 10:49

A DOG owner is delighted to have been reunited with her diabetic pet that she lost while out walking on a beach.

Rebecca Tighe was strolling with Lucky along Seaton Carew beach when the Staffordshire bull terrier cross wandered off at 8pm on Sunday, January 8.

The much-loved five-year-old dog was diagnosed with diabetes just three months ago and needs a certain type of food and insulin every 12 hours.

Rebecca, a part-time beauty therapist from High Grange, Billingham, was beside herself with worry as she searched high and low for the hound until Lucky reappeared in the Burbank estate yesterday afternoon.

Rebecca said: “She’ll have been very lost and confused. I’m really happy she’s been found.

“She really needs her food and medicine and would have gone downhill fast.

“She’d been seen in the area and it turned out she was in someone’s flat.”

Rebecca, 24, stayed out looking for Lucky until the early hours of Monday and has since been told that her pet was seen not only in the Burbank estate but at Mill House skate park, off Raby Road, and on the Headland.

Rebecca added: “She would never run off and has never done anything like this before.

“I’ve only known about the diabetes for three months and it’s unstable. The vet has been trying to get her on the right insulin but she’s still not right.”

Dog lost after fatal car crash found and reunited with owner
Penny Eims, Dog News Examiner
January 4, 2012

Auburn, AL - The community of Auburn University has suffered a tragic loss following a single-car accident which occurred on Sunday evening.

On Tuesday, 20 yr-old Elizabeth "Libbie" Ainsworth, died from injuries she sustained when she was ejected from the vehicle which she was traveling in with boyfriend, Drew Cole, a safety for the Auburn football team.

Ainsworth was a sophomore at Auburn University.

There was one other passenger in the vehicle - Drew Cole's dog, Deuce.

The dog ran from the scene of the accident on Sunday. Since that time, a frantic search has been underway by friends and family of Deuce's devasted owner.

This morning, searchers found Deuce in the woods near the scene of the accident.

Deuce was hungry, thirsty and had suffered an injury to one of his hind legs, but appears to be otherwise in good condition.
A community of like-minded individuals had banded together via Facebook to conduct a search for the missing dog.

Those involved had one mission - to reunite Deuce with his owner, the young man already suffering from a tremendous loss.

That mission is now complete - Deuce is back where he belongs.

From this point on, he can stand by the side of his guardian as they both strive to recover from the painful tragedy that Sunday night's accident caused.

Rest in Peace Elizabeth Ainsworth. Sincere condolences to everyone who knew and loved this beautiful young woman.
