Fawn had been picked up as a stray by the Algood Police, in good spirits despite "two gashes on her back legs," Webb told The Dodo. Fawn had been entertaining visitors and staff alike in the county shelter.
"The MOST impossible, unthinkable, and AMAZING thing: FAWN is HOME!," Cole posted on her Facebook page. "Fern is ecstatic."
Susan Truscott, the pet sitter who told Cole that Fawn was dead, hasn't explained how or why Fawn ended up at the county shelter - but Cole made her feelings clear in a scathing Yelp review.
Best Friends Critter Sitter has not yet responded to The Dodo's request for comment.
