Facebook helps a missing Labrador Retriever mix reunite with owner after going missing for more than a month.
A 1-year-old Lab Mix named Lil ran away from home more than a month a half ago.
Lil’s owner, Sydney Adams, said she was living with her mother in South Carolina when she decided to foster a puppy. She fell in love with the pup and brought her back to Mississippi with her.
“I fell in love with her and taught her how to sit and fed her with a spoon until she got a little bit older,” she said. “She is my baby.”
While this isn’t the first time Lil has explored on her own, this is the first time she’s been missing for a long period of time, said Sydney.
She thinks Lil’s fear of thunderstorms caused her to run away during an all-day storm. Since then, she’s searching high and low hoping for Lil’s safety.
She had almost given up searching for her beloved best friend until she got a heaven-sent call last Tuesday.
” I was thinking that months would go by before I heard anything,” Sydney said.
“I thought I was never going to see her again. I spent a whole lot of nights crying about it, but figured that wasn’t going to do anything, so I put fliers up around town and did whatever I could (to find her).”
Lil’s photo was shared by Southern Pines Animal Shelter along with dozens of animal lovers across the Pine Belt until Lydia Eubanks’ sister-in-law saw the photo of the young black dog with the white chest.
“Yesterday, my sister-in-law called me and told me that she saw (Lil’s) picture on Southern Pines’ Facebook page,” Hattiesburg resident Lydia Eubanks said. “That’s when I contacted (Sydney).”
Sydney said Southern Pines called her Tuesday to inform her that Lydia reached out to them about Lil.
“I was in tears when I first got the call.”
