Montero, her mother and their friends all jumped in their cars and raced out to Berlin. They put articles of clothing with Montero’s scent and Rex’s toys all over the stretch of road where he was last seen. “We prayed for him to go there. I stayed until 3 a.m. and then left to go to work,” Montero said.
She left wondering if she would ever see Rex again, worried sick he was suffering after being hit by the car. Her mother stayed behind to continue the search.
On her way to work, Montero got the call she had been waiting for — her prayers were answered. “Someone said Rex was on their back porch,” Montero said.
