The Bannerman family lost their 11-year-old daughter, Tori, when their minivan collided with a tractor-trailer on Dec. 18 as they were traveling to see relatives for Christmas.

 

Making matters even worse for the family, their beloved dog disappeared.

He showed up two weeks later, as luck would have it, in the yard of animal rescue worker, Lisa Gonzalez.

Gonzalez has created a GoFundMe page to help cover the costs of transporting Coolyay 1,600 miles back to his family in Albuquerque.
