Missing Dog Found Through Facebook

Imagine the concern; two of your dogs go missing.

After a search, the first dog is found but no sign of the other one.

This story has a happy ending and the link in this case: facebook.

The first dog, Knik, wandered away last Thursday just ahead of the big snow storm and somewhere along the way he lost his tags.

Finally, about a mile away from home the wayward dog found something of interest.

A window full of dogs at 180th and Harrison.

It's a pet daycare facility called "Come Sit Stay."

"I opened the door and he just ran right in the lobby," Pet Daycare Owner Renee Johnson said.

The Humane Society was closed so Johnson posted Knik's picture on facebook.

"I mean it just spread so quickly,” she said. “It seriously was about 2 and a half hours since we put the picture of Knik on facebook that a lady called and said she thinks it was her friend’s brother’s dog.”

Today, Knik paid another visit to the daycare but this time with his owners, and his buddy named "Baby."

The Huskies are built for cold weather but the family is glad, that thanks to facebook, their dogs didn't have to spend the night in the snowstorm.

“They were like, I’ve had my fun, now where is my house?" the dogs’ owner, Elaina Woods said.

The Woods family also posted the missing dog information on facebook and through all the "shares" from people on both ends, the connection was made.

Anyone can post information about a missing pet on the humane society web site.
