Pet Detectives are real...

...I had no idea. This family searched for six days, and the pet detective (and his bluetick) found their dog in six minutes.
They took Samantha to the place where Rudy was last seen - a broken backyard fence - and gave her a whiff of one of Rudy's toys. Samantha followed the scent of the little black dog to a neighbor's yard where the family had looked several times before. But this time, as they called Rudy's name, his little head popped up from a ditch and he barked.
He was pinned between a log and a fence in a neighbor's yard. He couldn't move his legs, but he was alive.
"I've never been so happy in my entire life!" said Ellis of the moment she saw her dog. "I was screaming 'That's my dog! That's my dog!"
Wouldn't that be a rewarding side job? And he charges $350 a pop. Not bad for a side gig doing what you enjoy.
This is creepy though: Rudy's owner had already hired a pet psychic, who told the dog was "near the house and couldn't move," but couldn't pin down the exact spot.
Turned out to be true!
