Ann Powers Staff Writer 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. At the time, Tara's father in Montana was gravely ill and barely clinging to life. "Dad will be passing soon, according to hospice," she said. "His organs have been slowly shutting down. I hope we are able to make it back to Montana before it's too late." Tara also had a broken foot and was using crutches. This made it hard for her to look for Dusty because she couldn't easily walk or drive. "He's scared of people and I knew he wouldn't just come to anyone," she explained. "This was so difficult for me not being able to do anything to find Dusty other than call his name while sitting in the trailer or vehicle with my foot elevated. I felt so helpless." To top it all off, the family's septic system backed up at their home in Reno, creating an added crisis for Tara's husband, Tony, to deal with in the midst of an already chaotic situation. Nevertheless, that week the family made a daily pilgrimage from Reno to Lake Davis looking for their beloved pet, backed by overwhelming support. The Dusty, a Shetland sheepdog, following an exhaustive and around Lake Davis. Greg Knight Sports Editor Thanks to an online fundralsing effort spearheaded by local musician and artist Johnny Walker, FeatherRiver College soccer phenomenon Sherifatu Sumaila is a little bit closer to paying off a student debt that threatened to derail her chance to play at Florida State Univers.ity next season. Walker, an avid fan of FRC sports, has created a account for Sumaila, who, because of an offset in financial aid she was able to acquire at the college and the total cost of her After eight harrowing days lost in the Plumas National Forest, Dusty is home safe and sound. Photos courtesy Bertucci family Bertuccis said just about every organization, business and animal lover under the Plumas County sun pitched in for Dusty's safe return. Fliers were posted, prayers were said and voices went hoarse calling the pooch's name. In addition, Tara paid a service to make 750 calls alerting people to Dusty's disappearance. While hundreds of calls went out, hundreds also came in with "Dusty sightings" -- to no avail. The support even went global with family friends from Sweden checking in, and viral after Tara created a Facebook page chronicling Dusty's dilemma. ,, "There must have been about 1,000 people involved overall," she estimated. "I have never felt such an outpouring of love, care and sleeps soundly among his toys extensive search to find him in tuition, is roughly $7,500 short of being able to pay off what is owed to Feather River. "If she cannot pay that debt down before graduation and obtain her transcripts, the offer from FSU will vanish," Walker said about his decision to help out. Sumaila, an All-American who recently turned 18 and maintains a 3.69 GPA at the college, has playedthe past two seasons for the Lady Golden Eagles and helped them on their way to a pair of Golden Valley Conference championships. She signed with the Florida State Seminoles women's soccer team last month for a two-year, full-ride program -- concern since we moved here from Montana in 1988," Unfortunately, as the weekend rolled around again there was still no sign of Dusty. So, the Bertuccis took it to the next level. The family returned to Lake Davis and set up their search and rescue operation as a campsite at Honker Cove Overlook. They arrived armed with Dusty's toys, bowls, blankets, towels, dog beds, leashes, clothes with their scent on them, a cage on loan from Plumas County Animal Control and a lot of red meat. Shawn strategically placed bowls of fresh steak alongside the various comfort items from home, leading Dusty to the area where his family anxiously waited. Finally, on the eighth day of his absence, around 2 a.m., Dusty showed up -- hungry, tired, cold, scratched, limping on bloody paws and with clumps of fur missing-- but wagging his tail at the sight of his'humans. Following the obvious tears, hugs, huge sighs of relief and sloppy, wet dog kisses, the Sheltie was whisked to the veterinarian for a checkup. The vet said Dusty will need a little TLC for a while, but should be fine soon. "He was a little whacked after being in the forest for so long," recalled Tara. "He is one lucky, lucky dog and we are lucky owners. We are so happy to have him back." And Dusty is happy to be back too. The Bertuccis report that their canine companion has been eating, sleeping and staying close to their sides. The family plans to host a "welcome home Dusty" celebration in Portola for those who assisted with the effort. For more information, visit Dusty's Facebook page at provided she graduates from FRC. So far, Walker's page has raised nearly $1,000 of the $7,500 goal. Anyone interested in donating can find the fundraiser at gofund "This is very important to her future as she will be majoring in business at FSU and she would also have the opportunity to play professionally in Europe or Africa upon graduation. She is one of nine children and the ability to help her family financially would be greatly enhanced if she returned with both a bachelor's degree and the experience of playing for the Seminoles," said Walker.
