April Daniele was devastated when her dog, a Great Dane named Ella, ran away the day after Halloween.
“She got out of our gate. It appeared closed, but it wasn’t quite latched. My dog nosed it open and she went right after him,” Daniele said.
So after days of Ella still not being home, Daniele, along with Perinton Animal Control, set up a trap in a nearby wooded area.
They placed food inside and even set a camera up nearby at one point.
Neighbors also pitched in by alerting Daniele when Ella was spotted. It took time, but finally they caught her.
By then, Daniele said it had been 20 days.
“The vet didn’t think she would have survived a few more days,” Daniele said.
Ella was checked out by the vet and is healthy.
