Finding Darby... a puppy mill rescue goes missing.
Just one day after meeting
his new family, little Darby escaped through a small hole in a fence and was on the run. Witnesses and his
new family were able to keep him in sight for 2 miles. The frantic Morkie crossed a 4 lane highway and continued running. Thus
began a journey that none of us will ever forget.
We as a rescue, left the next day for Enid to
post fliers that we made and to help look for Darby. We walked in pastures, fields and dirt roads in the vicinity of
the last sighting. Residents in the area were contacted and given fliers as were veterinary offices in the area. Darby
was micro-chipped so Avid and Home Again were notified that he was lost. On Sunday, March 8th at 11:30 p.m. we got a sighting
of Darby. A lady had seen him in her headlights and attempted to get him to come to her. She got close enough to
see his collar and to describe his markings. A confirmation that he was alive our there among all the coyotes!
We knew it was Darby but he was now over 3 miles from where he escaped. It appeared that he was heading east.
