Guinness is a valued family member of the Oachs household in Minnesota. The seven-month-old puppy who is fondly called Ginny is just a new addition to the growing family of Corey and Brianna. They knew the pup was meant to be with them forever, but their plans were almost not realized because of an unfortunate accident.
Brianna was about to bring her two kids to daycare when she lost control over her vehicle. The roads were slick due to ice, causing the car to slide off the road and roll into a ditch. Thankfully, no one was hurt. However, one of the passengers, Ginny, was so frightened she ran away.
Her family did everything to look for her. They made lots of posters and shared Ginny’s information on the news. Soon enough, people around the area became quite familiar with the lost Labrador puppy and helped keep on the lookout for Ginny.
Three men were driving near a quarry when they noticed a dark brown pup. Buster Nash, Jamie Johannsen, and Joe Janzen have heard about Ginny from the news, and they recognized him immediately. They tried to approach her, but Ginny seemed wary.
Nash thought of luring the poor dog over with his lunch. True enough, when Ginny smelled the delicious fettuccine shells with trout, she was won over. While she was eating, they took a photo of her and sent it to the number on the posters. Brianna immediately recognized Ginny and was ecstatic about the news.
After a week of separation, Ginny was finally reunited with the Oachs. They immediately brought her to the vet, where she was given antibiotics for the few cuts she had. She lost weight, but nothing her family can remedy with lots of food and love.
The family was so grateful to everyone who helped in looking for Ginny. They could not believe that their posts were shared 6,000 times and that strangers prayed for her safe return. Ginny was lucky to have not only a family but a community that is kind and loving. Thanks, everyone!
