    Default Dogs in AZ /FOUND

    The two missing aussies in AZ have been found. Eve was found a few days ago and Takoda was found this morning. He was 1.5 miles from the original accident site. Hes alive and well he has a sore front leg which may be because of a cut to his pad he's and on his way to the vet. Thank you for all your prayers and thoughts Updated story below

    Takoda was found by a volunteer, Matt. Matt checked every little valley up the hillside and finally about a half mile away he whislted and heard a bark. Takoda was laying in a wash area and this area has been covered at least 4 different times by 4 different people on Sunday . He stood up and gave Matt ( Matt also found Eve) a back off bark when he was about 20 feet away and turned to run so Matt sat down and gave him a passive posture. Takoda slowly approached him after a minute and relaxed enough so he could pick him up and take him back to the truck. He had been on the move and Matt thinks he may have cut his pad last night and just could not go anymore. With a cut foot I don't know how much longer he would have lasted. The Rancher that lives out there said there are Mountain Lions, coyotes, & Javelina we worried everyday for his safety

    Matt did not know them , he found the lost post via another post, he is their guardian angel.
