NEW SCOTLAND – After being stuck on a Thacher Park ledge for nearly a week, Khaos was reunited with his owner on Monday, July 23.
The German shepherd from East Berne took off from his owner, Laurence Wolfe, as a thunder storm rolled in on Tuesday, July 17, while the two were walking along the Overlook.
“He is doing phenomenal,” said Wolfe when reached at home on Tuesday, July 24. “After six days and six nights and a couple 90 degree days and a couple torrential rainstorms. He is doing phenomenal.”
He lost about seven pounds and has a small cut on his forehead, but other than that, Wolfe, who was giving Khaos a bath, said he is “phenomenal.”
A woman heard Khaos barking on Sunday, July 22, and the Sheriff’s Department brought a rescue crew up and picked him off the ledge.
“This pup gets a second chance thanks to our search and rescue team,” Sheriff Craig Apple tweeted on Tuesday. “He wandered away and fell off a cliff days ago. Someone heard him and we picked him off the ledge. Great job team and how he’s reunited with his owner.”
Wolfe could not offer enough praise to everyone involved in the search and the rescue of his dog.
“I would like to thank everyone for their love and support in this most trying of times. You are truly an amazing set of friends! I won’t be able to list everyone so please know that the list is truly endless,” according to a post on a Facebook page under the dog’s formal name, Khaos Ixos Von Bad-Boll.
