On a warm Monday afternoon in Norwood, 19 year-old Stephanie Gomez was extremely nervous as she was posting “missing dog signs.”

Gomez’s husky Ryder of ten months had ran out of her house four hours earlier. She was anxious to find her dog, ”man’s best friend,” as some say. Gomez mentioned, “Ryder is a family dog, everyone loves him.” She had been crying, “Ryder isn’t just a dog; he’s family.”

“I was about to walk him but before that, I went to throw the garbage and I had forgotten to close the gate when he ran out,” she continued, adding, “my entire family is on the look for him.”

Gomez had posted more than 12 “Missing Ryder” flyers around the Norwood neighborhood in the first half hour of his disappearance.

At around 6pm, a young dog-loving couple, Johan and Consuelo Montenegro approached Gomez to see if the flyers were about “Missing Ryder”. Johan Montenegro said, “we found your dog, we knew he was a lost dog cause he kept running back and forth across from our house looking confused!”

Gomez sighed in relief, as she knew her dog was in safe arms and would soon be on his way back home.

The young married Montenegro couple had taken the dog in until they could find his owner. Gomez ran to the Montenegro residence to pick up Ryder the cutest reunion of owner and dog happened. Ryder leaped into Gomez’s arms as joyful to see his owner again.

Consuelo Montenegro said “We’re glad to have found such a good husky and placed him back into his owner’s arms, we wouldn’t know what to do if our dog was missing and was never given back.”
