COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – A service dog has been found after an anonymous tip from a Columbus resident.

Retired Staff Sgt. Jacare Hogan from Fort Benning was needing the public’s help in locating her son’s emotional support service dog, Bowser. 

“They sent a message saying ‘I think I know where your dog is at, I can help you find your dog,’” said Hogan.

Bowser had been missing for at least six days before he was found. 

Hogan's son is autistic and relies on Bowser, who is an AKC registered blue pit bull.

Hogan believes someone stole the dog after she located it at a residence off of Buena Vista Road.

“I had someone driving me and I said just drop me off because I want to stay on the sidewalk and I don't want to be on anyone's property," said Hogan.

“I heard dogs barking around the house."

Hogan said she called out Bowser's name and he came running up to the fence around the property. Hogan said she yelled the command 'Up' to Bowser and he proceeded to jump over the fence and ran to her.

"...And we got in the car and we left," said Hogan.

Hogan plans to press charges in the incident.
