They’re Home! Gunner & Leila Rescued by Caring Couple in Concord

August 15, 2014 11:30 am · 21 comments

Remember last night’s story about the two large dogs who were wandering around the area of Treat/Oak Grove/Minert?


Well, they made it home, and they’re exhausted!


Here’s a note from their owner (in red)

Thank you to everyone on here for your comments. It is a special community that would care like all of you have.

These are my kids, Gunner and Leila. We just moved a week ago and I think they are trying to figure things out still. Our side gate was left open, we discovered although it APPEARS to be locked, it clearly takes some coercing to do so.

A very kind couple who just happened to have 2 leashes in their car were able to get them and hold them until I arrived. My babies managed to run into a cactus but were fine otherwise.

Thank you again for all your efforts. This is a picture after their “triumphant” excursion yesterday. Danes don’t exactly have a lot in the tank.

They’re adorable, and this is wonderful news! One of the best parts of this story that nobody mentioned is that through all of this, the two dogs stuck together.

Thanks to ALL of you who tried to help Gunner & Leila find their home.

So glad your two adventurers are back home safely, and what sweet neighbors to bring them back. Live near there and will keep an eye out in case Leila and Gunner make another break for it!

Mom!! “Danes don’t exactly have a lot in the tank.” Did you just call your babies stupid!!

Actually cool that they hung together. Were they raised together?

Jtkatec, I think they mean energy wise. 😉 That was my guess anyway.

Dogs can be friends too. I’ve seen a pair a few times in my area and they always play together. Happy your 2 are home again.

LOL #3! I think Mom meant they were tuckered out after their excursion and were out of gas.

That’s terrific! Thanks for the update!

As our pets can so easily get lost, please investigate all of the details in microchiping your pet, enabling the animal shelter or any veterinary clinic to readily identify and contact the owner.

You are really dumb, aren’t you? She obviously meant energy.
