Driver Reunited With His Stolen Dog


Truck driver Eddie Williams waited seven, long and lonely months to be reunited with his fur baby.

On Monday, the agonizing wait came to an end; Williams and his beloved poodle, Boomer, were reunited.

Williams said someone stole Boomer from him last November while he was parked at a Sherman, Indiana gas station.

Distraught, Williams did everything he could to find Boomer.  He even rented a mobile billboard in hopes of being reunited with his dog.

Last Monday fate stepped in.  Williams stopped at the TA truck stop in Indianapolis and noticed a woman holding a dog that looked like Boomer.  He approached the woman and asked her if he could hold her dog.  The woman allowed Williams to hold her dog and told Williams she and her husband found the dog wandering in the area of the Sherman gas station around the time Boomer went missing.

Williams contacted the police, who contacted the woman and her husband.  The dog was retrieved and his microchip was scanned.  The dog was Boomer.

Boomer was returned to Williams.

“Looking forward to us re-bonding and us getting used to each other. Him realizing he’s back with daddy can do anything he want to do tear up anything he wanna tear up because there’s no consequences. His name is boomer he get away with anything,” Williams told WXIN.
