Dog ejected from vehicle in Idaho crash found herding sheep
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A dog that disappeared for two days after being thrown from a vehicle in an accident was apparently found doing the job it was bred to do - herding sheep.
Linda Oswald's family and her dog Tilly were driving down Idaho State Highway 41 on Sunday when they crashed into another car and knocked the dog through the rear window, The Spokesman-Review reported.
The uninjured but drugged dog then ran away, leading to an immediate search with at least six complete strangers who witnessed the accident and stopped along the highway to help, Oswald said.
“People just kept walking,” Oswald said, noting that the search took about 10 hours on Sunday before the family went home. "We were sore and exhausted."
Oswald said the family then wrote a Facebook post that included a picture of the 2-year-old border collie and red heeler mix, and more than 3,000 people shared the post. At that point, Tyler, Travis, and Zane Potter recognized the dog in the photo as the same dog they'd seen on their family farm south of Rathdrum on Tuesday.
Both the Potters and Oswald believe that Tilly was drawn to the farm and its sheep.
"I think that dog tried herding," said Travis Potter.
Oswald said if it wasn't for the post, he would still be out there.
