ATLANTA — A prize-winning show dog that vanished at the Atlanta airport has been found.
Officials at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport say Gale, a 22-year-month-old American Staffordshire terrier, is back with her owner after days of searching for her.
News outlets report airport search crews spotted the dog in an airfield thicket Tuesday and set up a baited trap. She was reunited with her owners not long after.
Gale’s handlers arrived at the airport March 23 to fly back to Amsterdam. Gale was checked in and went through security, but according to the owner, the handlers were about to board a plane when officials told them the dog was missing. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines said in a statement that the dog broke out of its cage.
