Fergus, a 200-pound Irish wolfhound who resides with his family in Nashville, Tennessee, found it difficult to ride in the car with his folks. A motorist rear-ended them at a stoplight, ejecting Fergus, who was shaken by the incident and rose to his feet to leave the vehicle.
Sister of Fergus, Meredith McKay Luckett, stated to The Dodo:
“My father leapt out of the car and started looking for it within a short period of time, but it was already gone. He was so terrified, as you could guess, that he simply fled.”
After Meredith and her family informed their neighborhood of the loss of their cherished dog, dozens of people from all over the city gathered to assist in the hunt for the large canine.
The girl uttered:
“People started frantically searching the area for Fergus 30 minutes after the accident in an effort to assist us. We set up feeding stations with the assistance of rescue organizations, and we did everything we could to pursue the leads.”
The family waited days for any sign of Fergus, but they were unwilling to give up hope.
“Cars were driving with their flashing lights on and slowing down at all times within two miles of the collision location. It was astounding.
Meredith received a call just as things appeared to be going in the wrong direction and Fergus might not be coming back.
“We have your dog,” they stated over the phone as it started to ring while I was still dozing off.
She was ecstatic to learn that her devoted puppy was at last secure.
“He truly is a gentle giant. One of the reasons we were so concerned about him being outside was because she can be a bit of a diva and enjoys being indoors. Undoubtedly a treated pet.”
The house of Fergus, which was not far from the crash site, was already occupied when the girl arrived. When Meredith seen her puppy again, she couldn’t help but sob. The dog joined her, cuddled up against her shoulder, and howled with joy.
It was obvious that the reunion was quite emotional.
To get the dog’s injuries and bruises from the accident addressed, the family went it to the vet.
“He faces a challenging journey ahead of him. We’re definitely concentrating on finding a cure right now.”
