Carter said she got a call from a woman in Florida Thursday morning who had seen reports of Kenny. She offered another $1,000, making the total reward $2,000.
"She had lost an animal before and knows how devastating it can be. It's unbelievable, I'm really thankful that she is doing that," Carter said.
In the end, the reward wasn't needed. Carter's husband, Dwayne, found Kenny at the intersection of Benedict and Signal roads about two miles from the barbershop where the truck was stolen.
Kenny was found "over a ravine and down in a holler," Fannin said. Dwayne Carter heard the dog barking while he searched for him on his ATV.
The elderly beagle suffers from hearing and vision problems. Aside from having a muddy coat and shivering from the cold, he was no worse for the wear.
"It's amazing that after two days with an older dog like this that he was barking," Fannin said.
As soon as Kenny was returned to his rightful owner, he got some crackers and was placed in front of a heater to warm up. Then it was time to go home, where he got a meal and a bath.
Though he was worried at times that he would never see his friend again, Fannin said he never gave up hope, especially with all of the support he received.
"With not knowing where to look exactly, you know, it's just a big, big radius, but I did feel comfortable looking for him," Fannin said. "It's like finding a needle in a hay stack; it's almost an impossible thing."
