In the meantime, one of the helpful fishermen reached out to his wife. She is part of The Lost Dog Search Team, a local social media outlet that helps to reunite lost pets with their owners. Rylee’s story quickly got out to more than 20,000 people, and then a miracle happened. Rylee was spotted at a campground near the lake. Even after swimming six miles to land, she was absolutely fine. Edward and Elizabeth were more than thrilled to be reunited with their brave girl.

Thanks to the power of social media and a few kind people, as well as a little luck, Rylee made it home safe and sound. Organizations like The Lost Dog Search Team can be found all over social media and they do amazing work of networking and finding lost pets. Thanks to them, there are plenty of happy endings like this one!
