Around 6 a.m. on Tuesday morning, Purdy the dog and her family went out into a nearby field for their usual morning walk. Purdy was running around the field with her other dog siblings when suddenly, she heard a loud noise. The noise spooked her so much that she ran away — and the field was so foggy that her dad had no idea where she went. He searched and searched, but Purdy was nowhere to be found.
Some neighbors reported seeing Purdy, and they thought she may have been hit by a car before running off again. Her family feared the worst, but kept searching and hoping that she was OK.
“There was a noise and she ran off,” Mark Hall, Purdy’s dad, said in a press release. “It was really foggy and I couldn’t see her, I was shouting [for] her but couldn’t find her. I took the other two home and looked all over. We heard she’d been run over. It was the absolute worst thing ever.”
