Jake had been missing for nearly a year and a half after disappearing from his family’s yard, leaving his rescuers scratching their heads as to how the intrepid pup managed to cross the country all on his own.
“There is speculation that possibly a truck driver found Jake in Arizona and brought him to Pennsylvania, but that is simply a guess due to the fact that we have a large trucking company in our small town,” Metz said. “Jake's owners do not know anyone from Pennsylvania, or anyone on the East Coast for that matter, so they were just as baffled as we are.”
With a newborn baby at home, Jake’s owners were unable to make the long trip to fetch their wayward dog, and reached out to the rescue to see if there was any way to get him back safely.
“We were happy to take on the challenge,” Metz added.
