WAPAKONETA — Lost in the dark, his owner thousands of miles away, one worthy dog found his way home thanks to a caring community and social media.
Gently bumping his nose against the people closest to him, Diezel, the 11-year-old blind husky, makes his way around by his sense of smell and the helpful guidance of those who care for him.
After accidentally leaving the gate open in the back yard, Diezel was lost to his family.
