Darrell Slack said he was in the midst of his Christmas package deliveries last month when Paula Odom, a resident of Turtletown, Tennessee, alerted him about her missing Jack Russell Terrier named Pete.
“I just told her, ‘We’ll find him’,” Slack said.
“I was absolutely in tears and just thought that I’d never see him again,” Odom said.
Slack says he was in a remote area when he spotted Pete in his peripheral vision. Using the dog biscuits he keeps in his UPS truck to befriend neighborhood dogs, Slack was able to convince Pete to come to him from out of the woods.
With his new companion, Slack finished his deliveries for the day and then swung back by the Odom home. “As he held Pete in his arms I just about collapsed,” Odom said. “I was overjoyed.”
