FLORENCE - A dog animal control officers thought was abandoned in Pinal County has been reunited with its owner.
The owners of Midnight met with Pinal Animal Care & Control Friday to claim their dog and complete the investigation.
Midnight was found in the San Tan Valley area and animal control officers say her owners had been searching for her.
The combination of her old age, thick black coat and the muzzle contributed to her severe heat distress. Midnight's owners said she suffers from anxiety and is destructive when they are not home. They use the muzzle when she would be left at home along for long periods of time. Animal Care officials offered several suggestions, including medications or training options to eliminate the need for a muzzle.
Midnight was quietly recovering after receiving fluids and veterinary care last evening and through the morning. By early afternoon she had perked up, according to shelter staff. The owners reported that the 15-year-old female dog had no other health problems.
