A pet owner’s dogged pursuit of the return of his furry friend in northern B-C has finally paid off.

But Lance Hingley of Dawson Creek estimates his effort to find Tucker, a 15-month-old Shi Tzu-American Eskimo cross, probably cost him 25-thousand dollars.

When Tucker vanished before Christmas, Hingley went to the media, placed billboard ads throughout B-C’s Peace Region and offered a five thousand dollar reward.

But it wasn’t until he upped the reward to 10 grand that he heard from the Alberta truck driver who had taken Tucker into his care after finding the small dog wandering on his own.

Hingley says it’s awesome to have Tucker back, saying the dog licked and whined for about five minutes after the reunion.

But he’s a little miffed at the trucker for holding out for the 10 thousand dollar reward, saying he’s appealing to him to give half the money to the S-P-C-A and save a little face.
