Dog Lovers Mobilize to Tail a Runaway
November 30, 2016
It was 11 a.m. on a Wednesday when pet-sitter Chris Scherrer and four of her charges were descending a trail into the woods behind Cinnaminson High School.
Off-leash in the secluded area, the group approached a creek at the bottom of the trail.
That’s when Scherrer noticed that one of the dogs, Nessie, a 65-pound 5-year-old, wasn’t with them anymore.
Through the thicket, Scherrer screamed for the dog, but she was gone.
“I took my eyes off her for less than a minute,” she said.
