Dog Recognized on TV Leads to Happy Reunion in Corinna
Two weeks ago, Roberta Moulton of Corinna left her home for a few hours.She returned to find her beloved dog was missing.”I came home and he was gone. we were upstairs and said ‘Where’s Snoop?’ We hunted. Half of Corinna hunted for Snoop day and night,” said Moulton.Moulton, friends and family searched for the missing dog, even offering a reward.It was looking like the ending wouldn’t be a happy one.But then, a funny thing happened. “The other night he was on tv for the humane society and I think just by luck he was the only dog chosen to be on tv,” said Moulton.During a story we ran last weekend about adopting animals from the Bangor Humane Society, we showed a very cute, but very sad, brindle-coated boxer.A neighbor of Moulton’s took one look at the dog’s face and knew he was seeing Snoop Dog. It wasn’t long before Moulton was heading to Bangor.”I went right down and I walked in back and he was laying back to me, and I said ‘There’s my Snoop Dog!’ And he jumped up and came over and he put his head against the gate and I said, ‘Oh, my baby!”Snoop Dog was brought to the shelter about a week after he went missing.The shelter had no record of him being reported as lost and renamed him Sgt. Pepper.He was in the process of being adopted to a new family, but Moulton showed up in the knick of time.”The minute he kind of got wind that his owner was out in the hall he dragged our staff person and just toppled. It was the happiest we had seen that dog,” said Stacey Coventry, public relations manager at the Bangor Humane Society.It’s a good reminder to folks who lose their pets.”People often think of us as the first place to go when they’re no longer able to care for their animal, but i think they often forget to look to us first when they lose their animal,” said Coventry.Moutlon hopes endings like her’s happen more.”Don’t give up, he’s home so I’m happy.
