Lost Mastiff Reunited with Stonewall Family

Article Image Alt Text
TUCKER IS HOME!!! This missing mastiff recently escaped from a Stonewall Animal Clinic where he was being boarded while his family was on vacation.  Owner Julie McFadden McConathy said, “Thank you to everyone who prayed for us, spent many hours and tanks of gas looking, developed sore throats from calling, left special treats on front porches, ran through the woods chasing, called us with reports and sightings, and everyone else that put up with us. If you see flashlights outside your house tonight, call the police because, thank Jesus, it's not us!”
