In 2017 Osborne and Patel were enjoying a late summer hike with their Labrador-pit bull mix. As they made their way into the mountains, however, the beloved 14-year-old Chloe ran away.
Distraught owners Osborne and Patel looked everywhere for their precious pet, but she was nowhere to be seen. The couple refused to give up, however. So, they put the word out among Alma’s 300 residents that Chloe was missing.
To spread the news further, the couple also posted an appeal on Facebook. “Chloe has been missing since yesterday,” they wrote. “It’s not like her not to come home at night. She’s old, choco lab mix.”
