Thousands Band Together to Find Deaf and Blind Dog

I think the world needs more positive stories like this one. Dunhill, a 15-year-old blind and deaf Jack Russell, found himself lost in some mangroves around March 28th. His distraught owner took to social media, hoping to alert the community to the missing pup. What happened next blew her mind.

A deaf, blind dog seemed to be up against the odds when he became lost in mangroves, but thousands of animal lovers came to his rescue.

Owner Angela Beer said she tried not to fear the worst when she discovered her 15-year-old jack russell missing from its home in the upmarket Auckland suburb of Westmere.

“I didn’t want to think he was injured, alone and dying in the dark.”
Dunhill was found after a land, sea and air search.

She had been looking after her sick mum while some friends house-sat on Saturday night, March 28, when the dog escaped.

Refusing to give up hope, Beer sprang into action and posted missing posters on social media.
