American soldier’s dog lost for two months

AMERICAN military gets great news from dog sitter in Colorado.

A Colorado man received a new leash on life Saturday after a dog belonging to an Army soldier who walked away from his home two months ago.

David Powell was the promotion of two miniature Schnauzer puppies for Herman Haynie, who went on his fifth tour to Iraq, when one of the dogs, named Lola, slipped through his gate in Denver.

“It was rough,” Powell told FOX31. “Here is someone who has their dogs in my care, so that they can go to Iraq for us, and I lost his dog.”

After the hiring of a pet detective, from which the smell of Lola, he finally some good news on Saturday when a microchip company contacted him, saying: the dog was found about 15 km away.

Lola was reunited with Denver resident David Powell on Saturday, nearly two months after the loss.


“I knew that it was her,” Powell said. “It was just a kind of those dark eyes and just the way she is… her attitude and that kind of things, that is Lola.”


The Denver resident said that he regretted every time he had to email Haynie in Iraq say he is still looking for Lola, but was happy to finally be sharing good news.

“He was fantastic,” Powell told FOX31 of Haynie reaction. “It was just by e-mail, but still, it was a big relief for him. Since they are back, I’ve gone along the fence and there are no holes, I’m digging down and pulling rocks under the fence to ensure that there are no more gaps. I can’t go through that again. It is just heart-wrenching.”
