A search for a woman’s border collie that lasted two weeks finally came to an end — 15 miles from where the dog went missing!
It all started when April Reigart left her border collie, Lulu, with a friend for the weekend. According to KTXL Sacramento, April’s friend let Lulu out to use the bathroom when the unthinkable happened.
The border collie took off and ran away on January 13, 2018.
Once April found out, she mounted a search for her beloved dog. “We started walking all the trails where we thought she knew and calling for her and whistling,” April said to KTXL. “And then we got to work making flyers, hanging them, taking them to all the businesses and ski resorts.”
April also posted Lulu’s photo online and received an outpouring of support. People helped search for Lulu, but the more days that passed the more hopeless it seemed.
“I had trouble sleeping at night, especially when the snow storms hit, thinking of her out there,” April recalled.
The search lasted two weeks until Robert Grudzien, a complete stranger, found Lulu 15 miles away from where she went missing. Robert and his friends were snowmobiling in the area where Lulu was found.
“We really had no idea that she was out for two weeks,” Robert said. The Good Samaritan called the number on Lulu’s collar and before long, she was back at home with April.
