Nearly a week and thousands of Facebook shares later, a beloved family dog lost in a serious crash in Plano, Texas on July 11 has finally been found.

The dog's owner, Erica Cruz, and her boyfriend were driving on the highway with their 11-month-old yellow lab Daisy Mae in the car when an 18-wheeler slammed into their car, causing a chain-reaction crash with several other vehicles.

Cruz and her boyfriend both suffered injuries in the crash, and Daisy ran from the scene.

Cruz posted on Facebook about her missing dog, catching the attention of local animal shelters, law enforcement, and news agencies. So on Sunday morning when Mutts & Mayhem Animal Rescue shared a Facebook live video of Daisy's rescue, the good news went viral.

Daisy was found by volunteer search crews in an embankment in tall grass. She suffered from a fractured pelvis, broken leg, dehydration and exhaustion after being out in the elements for six days -- but with some TLC from rescue crews and vets, she's expected to be OK. 

Mutts & Mayhem is paying for Daisy's vet treatments because her owners are recovering from injuries and are unable to travel at this time. The non-profit organization is accepting donations for Daisy's recovery. Donate here.
