A woman from Colorado is thankful for the new technology that helped her find her missing dog after nearly three months. Here’s how everything went down. Taylor Salazar told KRDO that her golden retriever, Farrah, was her husband’s loyal friend while he was getting treatment for cancer that would kill him. She also said that Farrah comforted her when her husband died.
Salazar’s father was driving when he had a seizure and crashed, taking Farrah with him. The dog ran away from the accident site in a rural area not too close to her home. Salazar never stopped hoping that Farrah was alive and had a good reason to do so. People told her they’d seen Farrah, and surveillance video showed her drinking water near a farm.
Salazar said, “She would run away if they got too close, and she knew where to go. She was hiding.”A Fremont County Sheriff’s Office dispatcher came up with a good idea that helped move things along. The office could fly an infrared drone used for training in the area where Farrah was seen.
Salazar found her furry friend after the mission was a success. Salazar said, “She stuck her head through the barbed wire fence, and the next thing I knew, she was in my lap, and I thought, I got her. Salazar said she’s glad Farrah is home and thinks her late husband had something to do with them being together again.
Even though Farrah is back home, she still has some problems. Since she’s been on her own for three months, she’s lost about half her body weight and needs to have one of her legs cut off.
