Missing dog found in Santa Margarita
December 28, 2010
A rancher in Santa Margarita found the missing dog Tuesday morning when he went out to check on his cattle. He notified the Brown family in Orcutt, who immediately headed north to retrieve the dog.
“Otto is extremely thin and full of ticks,” an elated Ethan Brown said Tuesday. “He appears tired and worn out and was probably in the woods for the last ten days.”
Otto disappeared when he accidentally fell in the rushing water while running with Brown and other friends. Brown jumped into the water in an attempt to rescue his dog, but could only watch as the dog was swept away.
Otto is scheduled for a complete medical evaluation Wednesday afternoon.
