After 22 days apart, Lori Davis and Patrick Milligan of Scio were reunited Sunday with Madison, their female bull mastiff, thanks to several good Samaritans and volunteers with Linn County Search and Rescue.
Linn County Sheriff Bruce Riley said that the events leading to the reunion started at about 7:45 p.m. Saturday, when his office received a report of a possibly lost hiker in the Cascadia area.
Deputies arrived on the scene and learned that Brian Floro and his girlfriend Julie Foubert, of Lebanon, and her son Scott Foubert of Albany and his girlfriend Rebecca Heuberger of Lebanon had been hiking along the South Santiam River from Latiwi Creek Road. It’s an area the four are familiar with, and at one point, Floro climbed over an obstruction to get a view of a waterfall — and noticed 10-year-old Madison hunkered down on a rock slab.
The weak and hungry dog was in steep terrian with no easy way out, about two miles upstream from the road.
“At first, we thought he was kidding,” Foubert said. “We hadn’t seen anyone all day, let alone a dog out there.”
The slab was joined on three sides by steep rocks, with water on the remaining side.
“She was trapped unless she swam out,” Foubert said. “It would have been very hard for her. She looked pretty rough and she was scared.”

Puckett, a 65-pound Labrador/Border Collie mix was located Wednesday morning and reunited with his family at the Kent County Animal Control facility.
Puckett’s owners told 24 Hour News 8 they got a call that Puckett had been found just before 10:30 a.m. He was found by a Kent County employee and brought to the Kent County Animal Shelter, but the owners weren’t given details on exactly where or when that happened.
We received a phone call from a vets. office very near my house. The receptionist told me that a family found Willie about 2 miles away and brought him in to see if he had a chip so he could be returned to his family. Willie does not have a chip, so the family took him home and as soon as the vets. office received the Amber alert, they contacted the family and myself and then I spoke to the lady that had Willie and I got to pick him up within 30 min, of the first phone call! Given the fact that I had my dog back within 24 hours of issuing the Amber alert, the best word I can think of is OUTSTANDING! If I had not found your website and issued the alert and your site had not sent it out to the businesses as fast as you did, I would not have my Willie back! I would recommend this site to anyone that has had the misfortune of losing a pet. This WILL increase your odds of getting your baby back at least 80% THANK YOU!!!! – Tina Carter 1-(832) 850-6977
