Sometime in June, Man and his female companion, Spider, ran off. Spider came back three days later with buckshot wounds. Man’s family was in despair but Man’s Mom never gave up hoping and kept checking the PET FBI’s Found Reports for golden retrievers. It was a long shot, but when Tami Shearer, a Columbus veterinarian posted a report for a golden retriever she rescued about thirty miles from Man’s home, the family contacted Dr. Shearer and went to see. After Eight months on the streets, Man was much thinner, had lost three toes, and had other injuries that had healed, but it was Man!
