Heidi, the expatriate Iraqi pooch who was missing since Tuesday in South Jeffco, has been reunited with her new family.
The dog, a speckled mixed breed, was adopted last year by Spec. Shawn Flint, 24, who is finishing a year-long tour with the Army National Guard in Iraq. Heidi was found about noon Saturday, having been spotted the night before by a local resident.
“She’s home safe and now playing with a rope toy,” said Sarah Flint, Shawn’s sister. “She was glad to see my mom and dad.”
