Mandy, the dog missing was found by local residents Saturday morning near the site of the accident, and apparently is in good health, though she is on her way to be checked out by a veterinarian, said pet rescuer Jim Branson.
Mandy's owner, an elderly gentleman with no family in the area, has been relying on community support to help find the flat-coated retriever.
The community came out in a big way, organizing searches and reporting numerous sightings of the shy dog. Bitterly cold temperatures over recent days added to the concerns for the senior pooch.
Branson said Mandy was seen about 5 blocks from accident site atop Finn Hill, near 138th and 72nd.
"We got a call this morning of a sighting on Holmes Point Drive. Lots of people went down and kept track of where she was" until her owner could be brought to the site, Branson said. Mandy came right to her owner, and was taken to the vet for a checkup.
MEOW Cat Rescue volunteer Marilyn Hendrickson said she was out with searchers after the call came in this morning that the dog had been sighted on Holmes Point Road, and that Mandy, though thinner and soaking wet, appears to be in good health and was thrilled to be back with her family.
