Puppy discovers sanitation worker's lost wallet before he realized it was gone

A man in Douglas Island, Alaska, was reunited with his missing wallet, before he even knew that the wallet was gone, thanks to a seven-month-old puppy with a keen sense of smell and a knack for retrieving, reported Thursday's publication of the Juneau Empire.

Rudy Vonda, a sanitation worker with Pacific Waste Management, lost his wallet while working somewhere along his route in North Douglas. Before he realized that the important piece of property was gone, he received a call from Bonnie and Brad Gruening, who let him know that their small, Maltese puppy, "Lady Bunny," had found it.

Though not a retriever by breed, Lady Bunny is known for finding treasures - she is said to be particularly fond of her neighbors' shoes; fortunately for Mr. Vonda, this particular treasure was truly valuable.

The Gruenings were pleased that their inquisitive pup found this particular prize, and that they were able to return the wallet to the man who services the route that they live on. Vonda was equally pleased - after the wallet was safely back in his possession, he told the Juneau Empire:

That was a real surprise,"

"It was like a dog from heaven."
