They feared the worst when they found an old dog in the woods, but then they made a discovery

They feared someone had dumped an old dog with cancer in the woods to die, but it turned out the dog had just run away after being scared by fireworks. Rocky, a 17-year-old shepherd mix, was reunited with his owners after a shelter posted a video of him on Facebook.

“Thanks to all of your shares, the owner has been located! They have been searching for 4 days for Rocky. He dissappeared after being spooked by fireworks. Rocky is 17 years old and has cancer, he is loved and very missed. We are SO relieved this story has a happy ending.”Conway Area Humane Society
