The dog belonging to the victim of an Anderson County traffic fatality on Friday has been found safe, Fox Carolina reported January 26.

Baby Girl, who ran off after surviving the crash that took the life of her "mom," was found safe Sunday afternoon at the Saluda Valley Country Club near the accident site. The Maltese was in good condition, despite being out in below freezing temperatures for two days after surviving the accident.

This Examiner story covered the story of Baby Girl, who has been the subject of a massive search party over the weekend.

This sweet little dog was found in time to attend the funeral service for her "mom," Tracy Elbertson, who was killed after being thrown from the Chevy Tahoe the pair had been traveling in. Lisa Smith Queen, a friend of the family, reported on the Fox Carolina Facebook link following Baby Girl's story

"There was as many happy tears at her service today as there was sad tears. She was so content to be back where she belongs....not a sound as she sat peaceful throughout the entire service! Such a sweet reunion after such tragedy."

It's nice that Baby Girl had the opportunity to pay her final respects to Tracy, whom the family now believes came back as a Guardian Angel until the dog could be reunited with family.

Baby Girl will now go live with the owner of the Town & Country Lounge in Williamston, where Tracy was employed. The bar owner has always loved the little dog, and was also a friend to Tracy over the years. Because of this, the decision was made to give the dog to him.

Rest in peace, Tracy. You have amazing friends, who organized a search party to find your Baby Girl. May she find comfort in the presence of those who loved you.
