Move over Patsy Cline — the Bertucci family’s search for their lost dog, Dusty, plays out like a poignant country song.
Appropriately, the story all started on Valentine’s Day.
The Bertuccis adopted the Shetland sheepdog three years ago from a rescue shelter after a previous owner abused him. Because of the mistreatment, Dusty was afraid of people, sensitive to loud noises and required medication, said Tara Bertucci.
During a Feb. 14 outing at Lake Davis with her son, Shawn, Tara said Dusty ran off when startled by the sound of a gunshot in the distance and disappeared into the 1.2 million acres of Plumas National Forest.
