Thanks to soldier for returning lost dogs

Editor:

On April 18, three of my English bulldogs managed to get off my deck at about 8:30 a.m. After searching all day with many friends, including door-to-door searches that led to dead ends, I notified the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office. A full report was filed. I was heartbroken, as I knew I would never see my “babies” again.

On April 25, I received a letter from the sheriff’s office stating that they had fully investigated my report, but with no leads, they were closing the file.

To my surprise, on April 26, I received a call from a sheriff’s office dispatcher that a gentleman had come into the office claiming that he had my dogs and had been trying to find me for the past week. Apparently he had read an article in the paper where the dogs were thought to be stolen, and that concerned him.

The gentleman was a soldier from Fort Gordon. He brought my bullies to me that afternoon.

I cannot thank him enough for returning them to me. I have been extremely down on my luck and life lately, and losing them was more than I could handle.

I want to thank the soldier, “Tarsk,” for taking care of my babies for the week he was trying to find me.
