WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
Sandy was brought to us in the Spring of 2013 at a year old. She was a sweet, social girl and was adopted by someone in Hosford who wanted a small companion dog.
Two months ago we received a call from a couple that were passing through Hosford on their way to Pensacola and noticed a small dog close to the road. They stopped and asked the manager at the mini-mart if she knew who the dog belonged to. The manager said the dog had been hanging around and following a homeless person but didn't know who the owner was.
The dog was wearing a Rabies Tag so the couple called to trace the number and it was registered to one of our dogs. We called the phone number on our records but the number had been disconnected. The couple decided to leave the dog where they had found it as they needed to get back on the road.
We called the mini-mart in hopes Sandy was still there but she had gone. We asked the manager to house her safely next time she came around, call us and we'd come and get her. She never called.
A couple of weeks ago we received a call from a woman stating that she had found a dog in Hosford and had traced the Rabies tag number back to us as well. We explained the situation and told her we would come and get Sandy but she offered to bring her to us. And she did.
We don't know what happened to the original owner. We don't know if Sandy got away or ran away. Poor little Sandy was somehow left to fend for herself.....but no longer! Above is a picture of Sandy with her doting new mom. Sandy is being spoiled rotten in her new home and knows now that if she ever goes looking for her hearts desire again, she won't look any further than her own back yard. Because if it isn't there, she never really lost it to begin with.
