A Dog Thrown From A Car Was Discovered Safe And Sound On A Farm While Herding Sheep.


SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — A pet dog that went missing for two days after being ejected from a vehicle in an accident has been discovered apparently doing what it was bred to do: herding sheep.

The Spokesman-Review reported that Linda Oswald's family and their dog, Tilly, were driving down Idaho State Highway 41 on Sunday when they collided with another vehicle, launching the dog through the rear window.

The unharmed but stunned dog then bolted, prompting an immediate search by at least six complete strangers who witnessed the crash and pulled over along the highway to assist, according to Oswald.

People just kept going out,” Oswald said, noting that the search lasted about ten hours before the family returned home on Sunday. “We were sore and exhausted.”

According to Oswald, the family then shared a Facebook post with a photo of the 2-year-old border collie and red heeler mix, and more than 3,000 people shared the post. Tyler, Travis, and Zane Potter recognized the dog in the photo as the same dog they saw on their family farm south of Rathdrum on Tuesday.

Tilly was drawn to the farm and their sheep, according to the Potters and Oswald.

Travis Potter speculated, "I believe that dog was attempting to herd."

Oswald stated that he would still be out there if it weren't for the job.
