When Gregg Mohler turned on the television on Monday morning he couldn’t believe what he saw. His missing dog was being featured as the Pet of the Week by the Iowa County Humane Society. It had been four years since Lucky had gone missing from his home in Lone Rock, Wisconsin.
Four years ago, when Lucky was 10-years-old, he ran away from the Mohler family’s home. The family searched animal shelters and placed ads in newspapers looking for their beloved dog, but never found him. On Monday morning Greg Mohler was watching NBC 15’s morning show and noticed a very familiar dog being featured as the Pet of the Week. ”All the sudden it stopped me in my tracks,” said Mohler, who quickly called the Iowa County Humane Society. “The first call was from a gentleman saying ‘You have my dog! I saw him on TV!’” said Cheri Phillmore of the Iowa County Humane Society.
Lucky had been at the Iowa County Humane Society since August. At 14-years-old it was very unlikely that he would get adopted. This is why the Iowa County Humane Society chose to feature him as the Pet of the Week. Thanks to that decision Lucky is now at home with his family.
