SABIN, Minn. – A Burnsville, Minn., man’s hunting dog has been recovered after it ran off following an accident Sunday night on Interstate 94 in Clay County.
Sheriff Bill Bergquist said the dog was found this morning at the Mark and Sherri Sanderson residence at 8413 120th St. S., southeast of Moorhead and a short distance northwest from where the dog went missing.
“Mark was out walking their dogs, and when he went to leave for work, there was another strange dog in their yard, and it’s the dog that’s been lost,” Bergquist said, adding the couple took the dog in and fed it.
Bergquist said Sherri Sanderson told him the dog “looks really good.”
Authorities alerted the dog’s owner, Mark Michaels, who was in the Minot, N.D., area and is expected to arrive at the Sandersons’ early this afternoon to reunite with his dog, Huck, a Vishla hunting dog.
Michaels and Huck were on their way to western North Dakota on Sunday night when Michaels swerved to avoid a deer and rolled his SUV on I-94 near mile marker 14.
Michaels sustained minor injuries, and Huck got scared and left the scene.
