(WSMV) A dog that ran away from a Tennessee foster homehas been found alive and well after five years in the wild.
“No one has heard of a dog being out on their own for five years and surviving, she truly is a miracle,” says Mary McCormick with Music City Greyhound Adoption.
Cassie is a brindle Greyhound who is calm, timid and loving.
After Cassie retired from racing, she was put in a foster home in Smyrna, Tennessee.
It was her first night in the foster home when McCormick said Cassie got spooked and ran away.
“At that time, they put together a huge search party, and for months almost daily people went out there searching for her,” McCormick says.
Years later, Tonya Cook, who lives less than 10 miles from where Cassie went missing, discovered what she thought was just a stray dog in the woods behind her house.
