Horray for Lacey!!!!!!

January 14th, 2015 at 01:20 pm

Last week, a young man from this are went on a short hike on the applachian trail. (which runs thru out county) When he did not get back by dark, emergency personel was called. His car was in the parking lot of the trailhead.
An 18 month old bloodhound named Lacey and her trainer were called out to help. They got the young man's car unlocked and Lacey got a good whiff on his shoes. There were 3 trailheads to chose from, and Lacey headed down the middle one. The weather was in the 20's with a 15 mph wind blowing. Everyone was very worried because the young man had on only a light jacket and a pair of shorts.
Within an hour, Lacey found the young man (and his dog). His body temperature had already dropped dangerously low, but thanks to Lacey, they will both be ok. I hope the young man realized how lucky he was.
Thank you Lacey, you are a great dog! We are all very proud of you!!

    Yay for Lacey! This happened to my mom once, she gets very easily disoriented due to some brain lesions from chronic Lyme disease, and she went hiking right after the time change for daylight savings, not accounting for the fact that it would be dark an hour earlier. She had to call 911 and they had to go in and find her and our dog! So glad the young man is okay.
