Dixie travels with Roundup Ministries. She performs for people in schools, churches, nursing homes and hospitals, and brings a smile to peoples faces.

She was last seen at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, March 6, around Beacon Baptist Church near 23rd Avenue and Indian School.

Well, we heard from Dixie's owner, Kevin Walker, about how she was found.

Apparently, a construction worker who had seen the "Missing Dixie" flyers spotted the dog with a family.

He approached them about it, but says they were not helpful.

The worker then called Walker, who flew back into town.

With the help of police, Walker was able to reclaim Dixie.
