Sammy was missing for 4 years. Her family never gave up hope of finding her. ABC reports, she disappeared on a walk in Australia's bush country, north of Brisbane. Her owner Aubrey Lee, kept a Facebook page active for nearly four years. People reported possible sightings, but every lead came to a dead end, until a Facebook follower did some astute work, matching photos ,and markings. Sammy was found, and taken to an animal hospital, where she was treated for multiple injuries. She had a leg wound requiring surgery, and her teeth were in bad shape from the acid in pineapples upon which she had apparently survived. The hospital contacted Aubrey. Sammy immediately recognized her long lost owner. She's now safe at home recovering from her injuries.
