DAVENPORT, Iowa – Laddy, a 7-year-old border collie who was missing for two days, has been found two blocks from his Iowa home – stuck up a tree.
Ron Stevenson told the Quad-City Times (http://bit.ly/16eQoa1) that he was working in the yard of his Davenport home Sunday morning when he heard a dog whining. He followed the sound along his driveway and looked up to see a dog at least 10 feet up in the tree.
Stevenson retrieved the dog. A police officer who responded to his 911 call had seen fliers and knew where the dog lived.
After their reunion, Laddy's owner Cynthia Weeks said the dog probably was chasing a squirrel.
Stevenson said Laddy maybe ran up the oak's gradually sloping trunk but then became too scared to run back down.
