A dog missing for several weeks from Linneus was reunited with its owners after a Maine State Trooper located the dog in the woods near Smyrna and Oakfield.

Missing Dog Found and Returned to Owner

Cpl. Quint with Troop F in Aroostook County found the dog, Sadie, in a wooded area near the Interstate. Quint had searched on Monday also trying to locate the animal, but did not find the dog.
