Puppy Returns Home To Owner After Running Away From Car Crash

NEW HAMPSHIRE: A 6-month-old puppy, Lotto, was just reunited with his owner 13 days after he ran off after a car crash.

The pup was riding in the cab of a pickup truck when his owner’s boyfriend allegedly fell asleep and lost control of the vehicle.

Many who heard about the crash messaged the Granite Site Dog Recovery, an all-volunteer group that specializes in reuniting lost dogs with their families. The volunteers quickly acted in order to locate Lotto quickly.

After the group spoke with owner Felicia Haenel and asked for photos of her Lotto, who is a German Shepherd, they posted 250 flyers within the vicinity of the crash site and set humane traps for Lotto.

DogJust as the group was considering ending the search after following up on every lead, a man called to say that he may have spotted Lotto in the woods a few miles from the crash location.
