A family in Maine has been reunited with their senior dog, Sophie, who disappeared in a snow storm. The Labrador Retriever vanished after wandering away.
Albert Silver made a public Facebook plea on behalf of his missing dog, “We are missing our 13-year-old yellow lab named Sophie from Cushman Road in Bryant Pond. She went out with all of us last night just before 5 pm while we were plowing and shoveling, and she wandered off and hasn’t come back. Please share, let us know if she’s been spotted or any other scenario. We have calls in to animal control, responsible pet care, the town office and neighbors.”
A frantic search of the area ensued – and Silver’s post was shared over 2,000 times. Miraculously, on Tuesday, five days after Sophie’s disappearance, she was found, completely buried in the snow not far from her home. Amazingly, she was okay!
Two days ago, Silver updated concerned individuals who had been sharing the missing dog’s story:
EXCITING UPDATE!! Yup it’s a miracle. Sophie has been found alive and well. She spent 5 days out in extreme cold and winds and in the snow.
According to WGME News, the senior dog lost five pounds, but she is expected to be fine.
