Blind Dog Goes Missing From Family Home, 8 Days Later The Most Incredible Thing Happened

By - 11th July 2017

A missing dog can be a scary endeavour for an owner, what can make the situation even more distressing is having your blind dog go missing.

When Sage, a 12-year-old blind Labrador went missing from her home, the Cole family were quite understandably distraught.

The family immediately went on a frantic search around their home in Boulder Creek, California in the hopes that she would be in close proximity but they couldn’t find her.

Eight days went by with the family getting no closer to finding their beloved dog and they began to lose hope.

“We have predators in the area, so we thought there was a chance she’d died,” Cole said.

Dan Estrada, the Cole family’s next door neighbor was the person to eventually find Sage and he did so accidentally.

He was hiking with his friend Vincent and their two dogs, Barnabas and Köelsch, through the forest near their home and spotted something next to a stream at the base of a steep slope. Sage was tucked inside a small cove and she wasn’t moving. He was sure she was dead.
