The doggie, Luna, bolted from the yard and vanished without a trace.
On Saturday in the late afternoon, the dog vanished, and over the rest of the weekend, investigators looked for him.
The fam made every attempt to help them and sought an expert.
They set up a trap and packed their clothing inside it to use as a lure to entice the doggie out.
Nothing of the kind, though, worked. The puppy’s owners were even concerned that it would become lost and need to be located on the opposite side of the state shortly.
Considering that the doggie is a youthful, pure breed, it makes a great target for doggie thieves.
Fortunately, the camera got to get a fleeting glimpse of the nearby doggie.
The owner of the dog’s niece and son-in-law showed up not long after.
When the shepherd was addressed by name, she rushed away out of fear.
In addition to the dog not coming when she called, her canine buddies from a nearby yard also had little luck getting the dog to come out of hiding.
The infant, who was six months old, spent the weekend napping in the car while the other family members went on neighborhood walks.
The infant started crying as they were getting ready to depart, so the aunt hoisted him higher.
The infant then started sobbing. A miracle occurred at the same moment.
The dog made a tentative step out of her hiding place, as if wanting to know what was bothering her little comrade.
She was taken into jail and walked on a leash back to her house.
The dog returned to being the vivacious puppy she had been when the family reunited, preferring to having her ears massaged to going on solo neighborhood explorations.
