Anka was rescued by a man who found her near a busy road. The man immediately took her to a veterinarian and she received a full exam, including vaccinations and heartworm medication.
This morning, as searchers were mobilizing to head out again, the man called to let them know that he had seen the news report on Tuesday evening and he had the missing dog.
