After a strange series of events, a lost Yorkie was returned to its owner on Saturday.



Harper has been spotted several times at an intersection next to a giant agriculture field, but every time his owner approaches, the dog has run away from her.

Not helping matters is a threat by a hunter, who said they will gun down Harper if they get to her first.

The woman suffers from PTSD and relies on her service animal to get her through the day.



Harper's owner has deployed dog tracking professional Lindsey Sturgeon to help.

Armed with a volunteer squad, three latching cages, four trail cameras and some Little Caesar's pizzas, they are hoping to find the Great Dane before she gets into great trouble.

"Everybody says Little Caesars is the thing," Sturgeon said, as they placed the pizzas inside the dog traps.

Sturgeon said she has high hopes for the dog's return, but Harper has not been seen in the last three weeks.

"Given the terrain we're dealing with, she can cover such a large area in such a small amount of time," Sturgeon said. "Plus, we're very limited on where we can go."

If she had a guess, the dog tracker said it's possible the dog may have moved to a new location or "unfortunately, they did follow through on their threats and they have gotten rid of her in some way."

For now, they wait.
