Zip, the three-legged English setter, was a little stubborn and antsy on a bird hunt on New Year's Eve day near North Hampton, N.H., and bolted.
His owner, Peter George, fired a few shots in the air hoping Zip would return, but when he didn't, they filed a missing dog report with the Granite State Dog Recovery Website, a sort of Amber Alert for missing dogs.
Zip was picked up on the side of the highway at the Massachusetts border, and taken to an animal shelter. Thanks to George's report on the recovery site, and a search, Zip was reunited with his family.
George and his son Peter are anxious to get Zip back out in the field next year, but only after some work to break the running off habit. –Brian McClintock
