SPOKANE, WASH. -- A pet dog who vanished for two days after being ejected from a vehicle during an accident has been found apparently doing the job it was bred to do -- herding sheep.
Linda Oswald s family and their dog, Tilly, were driving along Idaho State Highway 41 on Sunday when they crashed into another car, launching the dog through the rear window, The Spokesman-Review reported.
The unharmed but stunned dog then ran away, prompting an immediate search with at least six complete strangers who witnessed the crash and pulled over along the highway to help, Oswald said.
"People just kept going out," Oswald said, noting that the search lasted about 10 hours on Sunday before the family went home. "We were sore and exhausted."
