The bacon burn kept her in the area. The owner felt like the dog was close by and wasn't ready to give up for the night. Both the owner and the cousin walked down the street one more time around 1:30 am and heard her tag. The owner gently called her name. Every now and then Fenway would respond with a whimper. The owner continued to use calming signals and Fenway slowly came closer. She practically jumped into my arms when she recognized her owner. Welcome home Fenway!!
Lizzie was just caught by the family using calming signals and a magnet dog. They were coached by CTDGRV Carol. The dog is extremely skittish. It took over an hour but the magnet dog (another dog to lure Lizzie) really helped. This is the niece of one of our CTDGR Volunteers. We are all so relieved that baby is now safe! Welcome Home Sweet Lizzie! Double leashes for you from now on!
