TULSA, Okla. — Trico was a happy pup. In fact, he was so excited, his vet diagnosed him with "happy tail syndrome".
Meaning he would wag his tail so hard, he would lose hair and skin.
Monday, Trico had surgery on his tail, and his mother was worried about leaving him home alone.
She took him back to the vet to be watched, so he wouldn't injure himself.
The vet says on Tuesday, Trico jumped a six foot fence near 51st and Harvard.
Laura Embry, her husband, and the vet looked for their dog all day and night, posting fliers all across midtown Tulsa.
It wasn't too long before someone spotted him near 71st and Yale, and another saw him get clipped on the highway.
Laura received a call about Trico Thursday morning.
“A gentleman called me, and I wish I could remember his name right now," Laura said. "He called me around 11 and said ‘Have you found your dog yet’.”
Laura tells 2 Works for You she immediately jumped in the car to see if her pup was saved.
“I went there and he was kind of pointing to this area, this little field and there was a fence and a tennis court area," Laura said. "He was trying to sum the fence again somehow with his leg.”
Now, Trico is reunited with his family once again.
“I don’t even know if I could cry at the moment. I was just excited, and out of breathe," Laura said. "My heart was racing, and I was trying to carry him quickly to my car.”
The vet says Trico's leg is dislocated. He will be treated Thursday and sent home to heal.
“It’s really swollen, his hip is completely dislocated right now," Laura said. "My vet tried to go ahead and put it back into place, but he was unable to. It takes a lot of strength and a lot of people.”
The Embry family would like to thank everyone for their help bringing Trico home.
