When Abigail Miller’s two dogs escaped from their backyard and became lost, the Ohio dog owner offered a unique reward for their return – and it worked!
When her dogs, Ajna and Zoro, escaped through an open gate on January 2, Miller immediately set out in search of her beloved animals. She found Ajna at a local animal shelter a few days after the escape, but Zoro was still nowhere to be found.
So, she got creative.
Miller created fliers, offering a case of beer and a pack of cigarettes, for the safe return of her lost dog and placed them around town. While her reward was a little strange, it certainly grabbed attention – the exact attention she needed to bring Zoro home, just 10 days after he was lost.
The 23-year old Submarine House employee said she offered beer and cigarettes because it was a reward she could afford, but that she also knew would attract attention. And that it did.
One man spotted the flier at a local Kroger store and remembered recently seeing a dog that matched Zoro’s description and photo being walked by a Dayton, Ohio couple that told him they’d found the dog and intended to keep him.
He immediately contacted Miller who found Zoro exactly where the good samaritan described. Although the man turned down the reward, Miller says she will be treating him to Submarine House sandwiches as a thank you for finding her beloved Husky.
