The 3-year-old Kelpie in the black and tan dress had disappeared in 2020, plunging her family into anguish and sadness. The incessant research carried out by his humans remained in vain. Their hopes dimmed as time passed. ” We just thought we’d never see her again “, entrusts Dale Cooper.
He was far from suspecting that thegetaway of Lucy had driven her very far from home, a 4 hour drive from the family home. Recently, in fact, she had been discovered alone and injured Port-Augusta, in southern Australia. She had a wound on her back so deep that her ID chip was showing.
The local bank of the RSPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) picked her up and took her to a veterinary clinic in Adelaide for his care.
” When we looked at the dog’s registration online, we found that she had been declared lost forever. “, relates Stuart Thomasinvestigator for the animal protection association.
Completely recovered, the dog was finally ready to return to her family. Its chip allowed volunteers to obtain the coordinates of its owner and to contact him to announce the wonderful news.
The reunion, 2 years later

nobody knows where Lucy was during his flight, nor how his wound had appeared. Maybe she had hurt herself trying to squeeze under a fence. That’s what you think Stuart Thomas. ” But I guess we’ll never know “, he concludes.
If only Lucy could speak, she would have so many stories to tell her rescuers and her family.
