ALICE, Texas (AP) - The search is over for Ivo (EYE'-voh).
The Jim Wells County drug-sniffing dog that turned up missing
from a fenced yard July Fourth has been located.
Veterinarian Glen Wilkinson says Ivo has a broken shoulder blade
and a tick-related disease. Wilkinson also says the 4-year-old
German shepherd has some infected abrasions, likely from pulling
while being tied up.
Capt. Joe Martinez says the animal was returned Tuesday after a
man, who recently heard media reports of the disappearance, found
the dog wandering on his property.
Sgt. Mark Regalado says the kennel door and the back gate at his
home, where Ivo lives, were discovered open after the dog turned up
Authorities do not believe Ivo escaped on his own.
