Missing Therapy Dog Returns Home

It was a very special reunion for one Longview woman, as her missing dog was found. 83 year old Ruth Wagner, who is legally blind, was reunited with her service therapy dog "Tess" today in Longview. The one ear old German Shepherd mysteriously vanished 11 days ago, and the Wagner family flooded the area with missing signs and newspaper ads trying to find her. After hundreds of calls and letters from the public, a couple in Ore City spotted the dog and called the Wagners. It was welcome news to Wagner who felt that losing the dog was like losing a good friend. Though weak, thin, and dehydrated, Tess was given a clean bill of health by the family vet. The couple that returned Tess home, has refused the cash reward.
