Hostage miniature dog escapes and eludes captors
In 1992, a teeny tiny 11-year-old Pomeranian was reportedly stolen from its home in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The following January, a father/daughter team in Corpus Christie, Texas, saw a van chasing little dog. The driver abandoned van and began chasing dog on foot, but could never catch dog. Finally, dog's captor fled scene, abandoning dog, an animal perhaps 1/20th size of its captor. The daughter chased dog, and dog willingly jumped in her arms. Since dog wore tags, father/daughter team returned dog to its owners.
What's next? Courier dogs?
Actually, that's old news! In 2001, it was reported that a then five-year-old golden retriever named J.C. delivered its owners' prescriptions from pharmacy. The pharmacy was located in same strip mall as owners' shop in Penn Hills, Pennsylvania, and J.C. always accompanied owners to pharmacy. The dog began carrying prescriptions back from these outings. J.C.'s not just any old dog. It was reported that he took instruction well, and when instructed, he ran down to pharmacy and returned with prescriptions in tow.
Since beginning of their relationship with humans, dogs have fended for their owners, rescuing them from all sorts of perilous situations. Won't you consider rescuing a dog from loneliness of life without an owner?
