She quickly posted pictures of the dog on Facebook along with details and her location. In only about 15 minutes, 300 saw it and 7 people shared it.
She called the vet's office but they had no reports of a missing pet. She then called the Sheriff's Office. They had a phone line where you could report a missing animal, but had no recent listings either. About to load the young female into her car to take to the vet to check the chip, she noticed a young couple walking in the snowy field behind her house. It was some new neighbors who had just moved in. The dog's name was Fern and she was 5 years old. A happy ending and a great way to meet new neighbors!
