Davis worked with The Retrievers, a volunteer team that helps find lost dogs, to bring Old Lady home. While search parties came back empty-handed, a few possible sightings encouraged the team to keep looking.
Days passed and it seemed nothing could lure the fearful dog out of hiding. “This is one strong and quick dog,” Davis wrote on Facebook, “especially for her senior age.”
As temperatures dropped to negative 10 degrees, Davis’ hope dwindled.
Then, on Monday, Davis received the call she had been praying for.
