It was a terrifying night for one family in Washington recently. A young driver of only 17 ran into their own car head on, injuring all the passengers in the car. The car contained a mother, father and their 15-month-old baby and their 6-year-old Chocolate Lab mix named Zaley. Fortunately, everyone’s injuries are relatively minor compared to what they could have been in an accident such as this one, and everyone is expected to make a full recovery. It is a huge relief for both the family and the family of the young driver who caused this terrible accident. Unfortunately, the family’s dog was so terrified of what was going on that he took off with his injuries following the accident and the family is worried.
The following morning a woman went to work at a local pet store and found the dog lying outside the doors of the store, soaking wet and clearly shaken. Fortunately, his injuries were minor enough that he was not in any immediate danger. Worried that his owners were missing him, she posted a photo of the dog online asking if she belongs to anyone or if anyone would be willing to share her post. Almost immediately her inbox was flooded with comments that this is probably the dog that ran from the accident when it occurred the evening before. Relieved, she called police and they came for the dog, reuniting him with his loving family. After all that they endured, this was a much needed happy ending.
