Dog goes missing for 8 years and appears in the driveway.
Jack Russell terriers are known for being smart but there is one in Gibsonville that may be one of the smartest after he found his way home after being gone for eight years.
“We let him out to go potty before we left and when we went to let him back in he wasn’t there and we couldn’t find him and we looked and looked,” said Jessica.
Days turned into weeks then into months.
On Tuesday, eight years later, Jessica’s dream came true. Crista and her youngest daughter were leaving their home when they saw a dog at the end of their driveway.
He still had his collar and tags! They have no clue what happened. But it sure would suggest he was kept someplace nearby and when his opportunity to escape came again, he took it. But no one tried to find his real home? Is this the whole story? Is it really the same dog? Confusing. We’ll never know.
