Abilene veteran finds missing service dog


ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – What started as a desperate call from a retired sailor looking for his missing service dog has taken a positive turn. Samantha Melchor has reunited with her two-year-old service dog, Mars.

He disappeared when an insurance adjuster left the door open to Melchor’s new home. Mars and Melchor’s other dog, Molly, wandered off and while Molly was found hours later, Mars was missing for two days. Two of the most difficult its owner has had to face in a very long time.

“I didn’t do well, I didn’t sleep, I didn’t eat. He’s more than my best friend. I depend on this dog for everything. I can’t leave the room without him following me, I take him to events. This is my baby,” Melchor said before the Mars discovery.

She and her family scoured the streets, shelters and the internet tirelessly. After two days, hope began to fade that she would ever see her best friend again.

“I don’t care if you stole it or anything. A reward and no questions asked. I just want him back,” Melchor said.

On Friday, as she and her sister traveled around Abilene handing out flyers, a woman approached with questions that would lead to their reunion.
