After her dog Isabella went missing three months ago, owner Natasha Chabun and some local volunteers rallied together last Friday to bring the missing pooch back home.
Chabun said she’s never felt happier than when she held her beloved dog in her arms again.
“I’m over the moon, I’m ecstatic — I’m still overwhelmed and I can’t believe that we got her back after this long,” she said.
Four-year-old Isabella, a pitbull-Doberman pinscher went missing Dec. 10 and week after week of searching without a sighting, prospects of a reunion looked grim.
In a last-ditch effort to find her, a small group of volunteers from YYC Pet Recovery joined forces to locate Isabella.
After seeing an online post last week, a small group came together to set up humane traps baited with roasted chicken in the southeast neighbourhood of Forest Heights.
In just three short hours, Isabella took the bait and was caught around 11 p.m. Friday.
Isabella was found suffering from frostbite, missing part of her tail, and a gash on her hind hip, but was soon taken to an animal hospital where she received treatment and released in good condition.
