Unfortunately, sometimes dogs get lost. Some pet parents are lucky and they find their beloved dog quickly. Others are not as lucky.
Janet Mihalyfi, a 39-year-old pet parent from Georgetown, lost her 5-year-old Rottweiler Mix, Havoc, a year ago. On Nov. 9, 2013, Mihalyfi took Havoc and another dog for a run in the woods. During the run, she took the two dogs off their leashes. When she did so, a deer appeared and both dogs went chasing after it. The other dog returned, but Havoc did not.

Since then Mihalyfi has put up thousands of fliers, set out dog food where people have said they’ve spotted Havoc, installed cameras in the wooded area where she ran and hired private dog investigators and psychics. Volunteer search groups have also helped her look for him.
Every weekend is spent in search of Havoc. The dog is microchipped and Mihalyfi has received numerous tips of his whereabouts. However, she has yet to be reunited with Havoc.
So far her search has cost her more than $35,000.
"Anybody that has a pet knows that they are a family member," Mihalyfi told The Associated Press. "I love him as I would anybody that I'm close with ... I can't give up on him."
For Mihalyfi, searching for Havoc is the best way to spend her money.
