News of the missing dog went viral while volunteers from Maine Lost Dog Recovery and an Officer from Brunswick Animal Control took action. A Facebook page titled “Find Popeye” was created, and over 2,000 subscribers were garnered. The subscribers helped report about 25 sightings of Popeye, and some even set up food and treats in the hopes of luring Popeye in.

Over time, with the help of sightings reported by various Facebook users, couple Rod and Ashley were able to successfully find Popeye.

“He just started whimpering and whining and made a beeline right for me. You could tell he had been looking for me the whole time.” says Rod.
