Update on Sawyer


We have an update on Sawyer, the fluffy white pup who was lost in the aftermath of the 4/27 tornado that charged through Tuscaloosa.

His owner, Paul, was recently released from the hospital and is continuing to recover as an outpatient, receiving physical therapy. The family believes that being reunited with Sawyer helped him immensely, as they have literally never been apart for longer than a few hours.

When Sawyer was found, it was evident that he had lost some weight. He also needed grooming. Sawyer is doing very well now!

Sawyer and his owner Paul were separated following the 4/27 tornado in Tuscaloosa. Paul was severely injured and thus could not search for his dog, so a family member in New Zealand logged onto her computer and set out to locate Sawyer. Almost 3 weeks later, Sawyer was found by an Alabama State Trooper 130 miles south of Tuscaloosa!
