Ginny Davis went to extreme measures to find her lost dog, a $23,000 investment that she said paid off.
When Davis lost her 2-year-old shih tzu, Sam, money was no object.
With six furry friends, Davis considers her dogs family. When Sam wiggled out of his collar on the way to the groomer, Davis was devastated.
“He was just in panic mode at that point and so he just kept running,” she said.
As quickly as Sam made his escape, Davis drew up a game plan to find him. She hired search and rescue teams from Oklahoma and Ohio to trace his scent and plastered thousands of signs all over Indianapolis and Greenwood.
With every phone call she got, Davis had a little more hope that Sam would be found safe and sound.
One day last week, Davis got a phone call she had waited months for. A postal worker saw Sam sleeping in a nearby field. When Davis called Sam’s name, the dog came running to her.
“I thought, ‘My God, it is him,’ and I just sat down and cried,” Davis said.
Philip Borst, who has a veterinary practice near Davis’ home, said he was shocked when he heard that a pet owner spent $23,000 to find her dog.
“I’ve had stories over my 35 years of dogs that have been lost for 100 miles away and they found them … in another city or state,” Borst said. “The lengths that she went, that showed that she sure did love that little pooch.”
“I’m not a wealthy person. It’s just that I feel when you get an animal, you make a commitment,” Davis said.
Sam was extremely dirty and full of ticks when he was found, but after a good grooming and examination, he’s the same dog Davis loves.
