Pet detective tracks lost dog
A servicewoman has hired an investigator to find her dog, who disappeared while she was deployed with the Air Force.
Brenda Keitzer left her beloved Siberian husky, Koda, with her parents in Pennsylvania when she was deployed to an undisclosed location with the Air Force. On Dec. 31, just weeks before she was due to come home, Koda disappeared up a hill near Keitzer’s parents’ home.
Despite a desperate search for the dog, Keitzer has now returned home, but Koda is still missing. Now Keitzer has hired a pet detective to try to find him, and is asking for the public’s help.
“I’m willing to try anything to get my dog back,” an emotional Keitzer said.
