Jake and Dierks

Dierks Bentley was distraught when his dog Jake went missing Sunday night, and took to social websites to help bring him home.

The Nashville area was rocked with severe thunderstorms.  Jake had been let out in the yard, and a thunderclap likely shook him enough to make him scale the fence.  Bentley immediately tweeted this news, and it was retweeted by thousands of his followers.

Jake is well-known to fans:  he has appeared in Bentley’s music videos “What was I Thinkin,” “Feel that Fire” and “Up on the Ridge.”

Bentley and his friends spent the night combing the area for the frightened dog.   Early Monday morning, fans were delighted to see the country star tweet:  “Omg.  My wife just told me someone found Jake on Facebook and is bringing him to our house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Bentley soon posted a photo of himself with Jake and his rescuer, Anna Belle.  He said in a tweet that the woman “swooped in and picked Jake up after he was almost hit by another car.”

“One of the happiest days of my life.  Grown men don’t cry…yeah right.  Thank you to everyone on Facebook and Twitter that spread the word,” he tweeted.  “P.S. I’m not afraid to admit that the first thing I did this morning when I woke up was to check Twitter to see if Jake had been found.”

  1. HOW NICE!!!!!!!!!!! – Since you are an animal person I will ask if you have any coupons for dog treats that you are not using and would like to donate to Dogs Deserve Better for their annual Valentine’s Day project, Send me email if you do. They have to expire FEB 25 or later. They need 500 – I have about 100. got them in a coupon trade group the past 6 yrs but they won’t let me do it there this year. I will send the person’s name (she is in Kentucky) if you have any. Thanks

  2. Well Dierks my mom recently passed away and you were one of her favorites. I bet she was watching your Jake and making sure he was OK because she had a Jake too.
