A year ago Octavia, the 3 year old Border Collie, busted through a front porch glass window and started her 91 day journey through Wisconsin. Finding Octavia was no easy task. Octavia was chased out of the area (by well meaning searchers), with no further sightings. Today we will go over Octavia’s story and it will help teach us about lost dog behavior and how one person made it her mission to bring her home safe along with some of the dedicated volunteers from Lost Dogs of Wisconsin.
