Remember Berdina, the pit bull from a local DC shelter who got lost and was running around a Maryland park last April?
After 355 days missing, someone brought her into the shelter today. Berdina's back home at the shelter! They said she's doing really well (just a little dirty-- and what dog isn't?) and gave everyone kisses when she saw them.
Weatherwise, this little dog has been through the unthinkable-- three blizzards since she was lost. Not to mention a DC summer, maneuvering around busy DC-area roadways, and nearly a year camping out in a very un-pit bull-friendly area. I wish she could talk-- I bet she's got quite some stories to tell!
I'm sure you all do this, but it definitely bears repeating-- when you see a lost pet sign, please take a look at it and keep an eye out for them. Great things can happen when we lend a hand!
