Lost Dog Success Story from Karen M.

Back to Success Stories



Imagine our surprise when we received a call 2 and 1/2 months after losing Olive and the person on the other end of the phone says, "I have your dog!" The caller heard my skepticism and said, "IT IS your dog. We're looking at her picture right here on Fido Finder!" They'd been checking the site but hadn't found a match until they changed their search criteria and there she was!

We received various calls since posting a Lost Dog page on Fido Finder from people saying they thought they had our dog and voicemails from Fido Finder about potential matches but none of them were Olive. We kept checking the site for Found dogs hoping to see Olive. As time went by we were giving in to the idea that Olive had found a new home. We hoped she was giving her new family as much love and joy as she'd brought us and they were giving as much to her.

I was afraid to believe it was really her when we got the call! I didn't want to be disappointed again. How exciting when we arrived at the home of her new friends and she greeted us with squeals of delight. She'd been well taken care of by her temporary owners. She'd settled into a new routine, had a basketful of toys and received lot's of love. It wouldn't have been surprising if she'd been reluctant to leave them. Thankfully, she followed us into the car and was excited to see the rest of the family (2 other dogs, a cat and our son) at home.

Thank you Fido Finder! Olive's safe at home and we're all happy and smiling!
