Man Identifies Lost Dog by the Sound of Her BarkPublished January 17, 2013
One Georgia man is counting his lucky stars. According to a report by USA Today, Shane Wilson lost his service dog, Lucy, after she jumped out of the back of his pick up truck a week ago. Upon losing the pup, Wilson spent the next six days looking tirelessly for Lucy, whom he depends on to conduct everyday activities.
After numerous false reports of Lucy's sighting, WIlson's prayers were answered when he received a call from his local vet after two women found the dog wandering alone near the interstate. They took the lost dog to the vet, who identified the pup immediately.
Upon identifying Lucy, the vet's office called Wilson to say the service dog had been found. Still skeptical, Wilson asked the office to have Lucy bark over the phone. Remarkably, he identified Lucy by the sound of her bark, and set out immediately to reclaim his dog. They were reunited, and in the USA Today video you can see the mutual excitement of both dog and owner.
Despite nearly a week of agony, Wilson's tale turned out, thankfully, to have a storybook ending.
