He was seen searching for his pet day after day until Mighty’s collar was found.

‘I have wept more this week than I thought possible, which has been very cathartic and healing… I left no stone unturned, crawled thru all the man holes, under the roads, searched every back yard and creek bed…’ he said of his ordeal at the time.

‘I feel so grateful to have learned from my little Mighty man that love is eternal and the true meaning of devotion…’ he shared.

He then got Mighty’s name tattooed over his heart as a lasting tribute to the sweet pup.
