Tina Anderson was able to reunite that family with its dog Nahla, three months after it went missing.
"I lost my dog in November of 2011," Anderson said.
It was during that desperate search to find her dog Gracie, Anderson stumbled upon a Craigslist post.
"From a woman in California begging for someone who lived near Fluvanna to go look for a dog," Anderson explained.
She knew it was a long shot, but decided to contact Nancy- the women in California who made the Craigslist post.
Nancy explained to Anderson that her daughter, son-in-law and their dog Nahla were driving through West Texas in March when they got in a car accident.
Nahla ran from the scene when first responders arrived and after three days of searching for her, the family returned to California without the Nahla.
Anderson told Nancy she'd make the drive to Fluvanna to search for Nahla.
On her second trip, Anderson said they found her.
"We look to the right and there was a heeler on the right side of the road and it was like the dog was pointing to the left and there was Nahla," Anderson told us. "We took a picture, sent it to her (Nancy) and she's screaming like that's her, that's her!"
The very next day, Nancy and her daughter were on a plane from California to Lubbock to reunite with Nahla, now three months after she went missing.
They soon learned Nahla was pregnant and Tina, still without her dog Gracie, happily adopted one of Nahla's puppies.
"Something good came from something unfortunate that happened," she said.
Anderson still has not found Gracie, but said she has some peace knowing she helped reunite another lost dog with its owner.
"For us, I think it was a story of random acts of kindness," she said.
