Tiny dog makes long trek home

Sept. 26, 2007 at 8:04 PM   |   Comments

GREENSBURG, Pa., Sept. 26 (UPI) -- A tiny dog showed great heart and determination this week when it managed to trek more than seven miles back to its owners' home in Pennsylvania.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review said Wednesday that after Bailey the bichon frise disappeared last weekend, its owner never thought the tiny dog would return to its home in North Huntingdon, Penn.

But three days after the feisty dog disappeared more than seven miles away from home, Janet Staigvil was shocked to hear a familiar crying at her front door.

Sure enough, it was Bailey attempting to be let inside and for Staigvil it was a dream come true.

But while she endured three days of frantic searching for her missing pet, Staigvil admitted to the newspaper that Bailey likely endured a lot more.

"He was crying, and you could tell he is still a little sore, but he's so happy to be home. He jumped the whole way up into my arms when I went out to the front to see if it was him," the ecstatic dog owner said.
