Thanks for the update MacPack. A great ending to the story. If you see Kaisers folks again, tell them we all send our well wishes to them and their dogs.
Lost red and white basenji - Westchester, NY
Not home yet but more sightings. She is keeping in a pretty small area apparently. They do have Shamus with them and she has seen him and was interested but I guess got spooked and ran off again. They found a place where she had bedded also.
I SO home she's home with them soon! I can't imagine how frusterating it must be to have her close and in sight and not be able to get to her.
This just in - CHLOE IS BACK WITH HER OWNERS!!!! She is looking good but they are on their way to the vet - just in case.
SUCH A RELIEF! Their owners put some serious superhuman effort into getting her home - congrats to them!
I am so happy for them and for Chloe and Shamus.

OMG - Excellent news!!! Yay!!!
Yes, when you know, please let us know how they managed to catch her and how she is doing.
Well, Chloe is back from the vet and amazingly after 5 days on her own, was not dehydrated at all so she did find a water source out there. She apparently got away when the dog walker was getting her out of her crate and about to put her leash on and a firework went off, spooked her, and off she went.
Over the past few days, they had seen her, sometimes with Shamus and sometimes without and would always get spooked somehow and run away. But the last time, she was really interested in Shamus and they actually ignored her and started to walk away, while dropping chicken behind them - and she came out to them.
I can't imagine the willpower (or whatever it's called) it must have taken to walk away from her like that. Man. Gives me chills just thinking about it.
It surprised me that she wouldn't come to them and they were saying that when a dog gets scared and spooked like that they go into survival mode and won't go to anyone until they calm down and have had enough of being on their own. is that true?
Poor thing - if she was spooked by the firework and then got away - she must have been terrified at all the fireworks that followed that night.
Well, I'm SO RELIEVED she is back. As is everyone.
I'm so relieved that she's been found and I do hope she'll soon get over the traumas.
One of my boys ran off after a car accident and although he was only gone for about 20 to 25 minutes not sveral days, he ran to a corner of a field and it took some time for him to come back to me. I put it down to people running after him to try and catch him. I did exactly the same as Chloe's owners - got as close as possible and then walked away ignoring him.
