Nextdoor Helps Reunite Lost German Shepherd, Dinkus, With His Owner

On Nov. 22, 2015, Carla Conward of Maryland was in the process of moving out of her parent’s house when her German Shepherd, Dinkus, got out of the backyard through an open gate. With the commotion of packing up boxes and taking things out of the house, Conward had accidentally left the gate open.

Conward says that Dinkus had been roaming around the backyard, which she described as “huge and park-like” and provided the dog a lot of space to run around. She added that when they walked the neighborhood, Dinkus was always on a leash.

Then, when she was on her way to drop items off at her new house, Conward suddenly remembered that she had left the gate open. She immediately called her parents, but they weren’t home. They rushed back to the house. But by the time they got there, it was too late. Dinkus was gone.
