For all you pet owners out there…have you ever had your dog or cat run outside the house and you lost them? I’ve had that happen to me and it can be your worst nightmare. The feeling can be the same as if you lost your own child. Heartbreaking

And that’s what happened to dog owner Lisa Menzies.

Lisa Menzies of Castle Pines, Colorado, was out of town when her 3-year-old golden retriever decided to step out of the house. Named Catcher, the dog was able to slip into the outside world when a breeze blew open the front door.

“We were getting some repairs done on the house,” Menzies told KDVR. “Our contractor left to go to lunch and shut the front door, and the wind blew the door open while I was gone, and Catcher escaped.”

But all was not lost!

Read On below to see what happened when an unlikely “hero” appeared to change Lisa’s fortunes!
