After Sammie the Siberian Husky disappeared from his yard Friday afternoon, his owner, Maryann Boltd, worried that he might be gone forever.
Luckily, Sammie was found by Myron Phelps, a painter working on a house just two yards down from Boltd's home on S. California Avenue.
With a little help from Facebook, Phelps was able to bring Sammie back to his owner, safe and sound.
When Phelps found the dog, he took him home with him for the night and posted a picture of Sammie on Facebook, hoping someone might recognize the dog and help him locate the owner.
Boldt and her friends posted pictures of Sammie on the social networking site as well, and one woman, Catherine Petersen Marshall Plowman, saw both pictures and connected the dots to unite Phelps and Boldt and bring the lost dog home.
Only a day after he went missing, Sammie and his owner were reunited.
"I'm so thankful to both of them," said Boldt.
Samson the dog is missing.
The four-year-old Siberian Husky was last seen Friday afternoon at his home on S. California Avenue in Evergreen Park.
He is calm, friendly and is not afraid of strangers, according to his owner. He will come when called.
If you see Sammie, call owner Maryann Boltd at 708-424-8335.
