Lost dog during Hurricane Harvey becomes unlikely symbol of Texas strength
A dog that accidentally got loose Friday night during Hurricane Harvey has become an unlikely symbol of Texas strength.
According to the Houston Chronicle, Otis, a German shepherd mix, got loose Friday night from a screened-in back porch in Sinton, Texas, while in the care of Salvador Segovia, 65. Segovia was watching the dog, who belongs to his 5-year-old grandson Carter who had fled the city due to flooding.
When Segovia went to check in on the dog Friday night, he was gone.
“I kept yelling his name and yelling his name and he wasn’t around,” Segovia recounted.
Segovia checked his porch Saturday morning and noticed Otis’ bag of dog food was missing. Segovia drove around his neighborhood looking for the pooch when he was flagged down by a neighbor who said they saw Otis walking around with the bag of food in his mouth.
Fellow neighbor Tiele Dockens also saw Otis and snapped this photo of him with his food.
Otis made it safely back to his owner.
