Texas drowning victim’s dog is found
Gollum, the Italian greyhound whose owner died trying to save her other two dogs from an icy pond in Fort Worth, was found yesterday, not far from her home.
Andrea Benua, 34, died Monday night after plunging into an icy pond to rescue her other two dogs.
Gollum was spotted barking near the pond, and led authorities to where his owner drowned. As his owner’s body was retrieved from the pond Gollum disappeared, sparking an effort by friends and family of Benua to find him.
The SPCA of Texas offered a reward of $ 5,000 for the return of Gollum,
On Friday, a builder working near the Benua home spotted Gollum and returned him to the Benua’s house, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
