A woman named Sherri Storoshenko owns a senior blind and deaf dog, Sheba, a pit bull and Labrador mix. According to her fur mom, she’s quite an adventurous pup despite her age and condition. She loves being outdoors and is always by her mom’s side.
However, on April 1, Sherri’s other dog and Sheba managed to get out of their yard. Sheba went to wander around, whereas the other dog decided to stay behind. When Sherri noticed that the senior pup was gone, she immediately started to search for her.
The fur mom was anxious, especially that she’s searching for an old dog who can’t see or hear. Because of the pup’s condition, finding her was a lot more challenging. She asked for some help from her friends and put up posters. She also contacted Petsearchers, an organization that helps missing pets reunite with their owners. However, they couldn’t find the pup anywhere. After a week, the fur mom was convinced that she wouldn’t be able to see her beloved pooch again.
But then, nine days after the pup went missing, a woman named Nicole texted her, informing her that she’d found her dog. Understandably, Sherri was a bit skeptical at first. However, hope returned when Nicole mentioned that the dog she found had a cyst on the eyelid.
Sherri said in an interview that she couldn’t help but break down in tears upon seeing Sheba again. Her pup was dehydrated, but overall, she was in good condition. For her, it was indeed a miracle that Sheba managed to survive alone for more than a week and with her condition.
This incident should be a reminder to fur parents out there to keep a watchful eye on their fur babies. This is important especially when our pets are already old or have special conditions.
