June Rountree adores Abby, her four-year-old dog. Rountree was beyond herself with shock when she went to her backyard in Dothan, Alabama, to check on Abby.
She sought everywhere and called Abby’s name, but the black and white mutt was nowhere to be found. Only Abby’s collar and leash remained in the yard, which were attached to a post in the ground.
June and her husband looked everywhere, but there was no sign of Abby or what exactly happened to her. Three weeks went by, and June was working at the local Walmart as she normally does.
As a cashier, June is very busy and she was going about her day when the strangest thing happened. She heard a commotion, looked around, and saw a dog inside the store. People were trying to catch the dog, but they were unsuccessful.
“I was like, ‘What in the world is happening?’” stated Danielle Robinette, 42, a Walmart associate. “I’m a huge animal lover, so I just followed her, and she ran up to register No. 6.” Rountree looked up, called “Abby” and sure enough, it was her beloved missing mutt.
“I called her name and she came to me,” Rountree reported. “I bent over and hugged her. I completely lost it then. I couldn’t speak. I was in complete shock and just couldn’t believe it.”
No one knows why Abby disappeared or how she found her way to the Walmart where her owner works, but the situation is really amazing. We absolutely love a happy ending, and welcome you home, Abby!
