A loyal dog who had been missing for nearly three weeks was incredibly found after it cleverly walked into the supermarket where her owner worked.
June Rountree's four-year-old lab-pitbull mix rescue dog Abby was missing for a total of 20 days after she broke free of her collar and escaped from the yard where she was chained.
Mrs Rountree and her husband scoured their local neighbourhood every night looking for her and checked the local shelter but to no avail.
She said she had even started to lose hope that she'd ever be reunited with her pup again after she'd been missing for so long.
But then, when she was sat at her cash register at the Walmart in Dothan, Alabama, US on November 28, she heard a commotion, looked up and saw a dog inside the store.
Customer Service associate Danielle Robinette spotted the pooch and said it had been looking at people “like she was looking for someone”.
“I said, ‘It can’t be,’ ” Mrs Rountree told the Washington Post. “I called her name and she came to me.
“I bent over and hugged her. I completely lost it then. I couldn’t speak. I was in complete shock and just couldn’t believe it.”
No one knows exactly where Abby had been for 20 days or what she got up to.
Mrs Rountree has worked at that Walmart, about 1.5 miles from their home and across two heavily-traveled roads, for 10 years and says she had walked Abby nearby but that she'd never been in the store.
Ms Robinette shared photos of the sweet reunion on Facebook and her post has so far been liked more than 7,200 times and shared more than 11,000 times.
