Lost golden retriever reunited with family after Christmas escape

December 29, 2010

A golden retriever named "Jazzy" is back with her family after a Christmas Day escape.

Andi Vanko says on Christmas Day she was in the car with her boyfriend and mom when she saw the dog dash out into traffic on a Carroll County road.

The group rescued the dog and continued driving to Vanko's sister's house where they were having Christmas dinner. The family found a tag on the dog that said "GRREAT," an acronym for Golden Retriever Rescue Education And Training. A call to the organization turned up the dog's owners in a database.

Vanko says the owners, a couple from Silver Spring, had been hiking when Jazzy took off and were thankful to get her back.
