Pocomoke City Family's Lost Service Dog Found

POCOMOKE CITY, Md.– A Pocomoke City family has been reunited with its lost service pet. “Lady” went missing after taking off into a cornfield by the family’s New Bridge Road home on Aug. 17.

Early Monday morning, Lady was waiting by the family's front porch; weak, worn but alive.

"I can't explain how I feel right now,” Lady's owner, Teona Campbell said. “I'm just happy that she's safe and alive and no one else has her."

Campbell said it was advice she got from a local tracker that paid off. Morgan Bennett reached out to her, telling her that if Lady was alive, she likely hadn't gotten far. He suggested Campbell use the scent from her clothing to lead Lady home. Campbell walked through the cornfields dragging behind her towels and T-shirts and left clothing in various areas, along with water.

The advice paid off, and a day later Lady was home. However, while Lady is out of the cornfields, she isn’t out of the woods. The family said she suffered injuries consistent with being hit by a car and will need surgery.

Surgery is expensive and the decision will be a difficult one for the entire family.

But for Campbell, who suffers from chronic seizures, Lady is her lifeline. Trained to read the early signs that a seizure is coming, Lady is able to warn Teona before they happen.

Campbell’s family members said they have decided what they will be able to afford. They said the surgery may cost thousands of dollars.

If you would like to keep up to date with Lady’s story and the difficult decision her family faces, you can follow it here

  • Phillips Packing House Named One of Six in Maryland to "Fix"

    Phillips Packing House Named One of Six in Maryland to "Fix"

    Conservationists call it a "threatened historic place." The Phillips Packing House in Cambridge was built in the 1920s. At its peak, nearly 10,000 employees packed vegetables and shucked oysters inside its factory. But after closing in the 60's, the building and its two, towering smokestacks have sat untouched. But now, a new initiative aims to restore the Phillips Packing House as soon as this year.
