Tilly, a 7-year-old Patterdale terrier, returned with her family three days after she went missing. Executives report the 9-year-old boy has cleared the reunion.
The dog was lost from his owner’s home in Llangollen, Wales over the weekend of July 16-17. Since then, her family has been looking for her.
«Patterdale Terrier is so popular among hunters that we’re worried she might end up in the wrong hands,» says owner Jean Parish.
The latter actually saved him from the world of hunting by adopting him. It’s not just her owners that have Tilly worried. Their other dog was sad and lost his appetite.
After a few days, 9-year-old Ryan Coates was driving with his family when he saw a dog on the side of the highway. The dog is under a tree on a steep slope. It’s about Tilly.
When the boy’s parents saw Jan Parrish’s search report, they immediately contacted him and gave him his whereabouts. Tilli’s lover quickly arrived at the scene of the crime with her relatives.
The female dog can’t help anyone because of the tilt. Fortunately, when firefighters spotted a small group, they drove past and stopped the truck.
By the way, one of the firefighters was Ryan Coates’ uncle. They were able to reach Tilly’s place and discovered that his front legs were pinched by barbed wire. After releasing them, they returned it to its owners.
Jan Parrish thanked the firefighters and the boy: «Ryan Coates is our hero and Tilli is our hero,» she said.
