According to the Acadia Parish Animal Shelter's Facebook page, the chihuahua that went missing after being involved in a tragic 18-wheeler accident with its owner has been found.

A person found the dog, named Chestnut, wandering along a highway and contacted a local vet clinic who, in turn, contacted the shelter.

Someone has offered to transport the dog back to the family free of charge, but not until late January. Chestnut will stay in a foster home until that time.
