A two-year-old dog was thrown from a car wreck on Washington state highway and feared lost when she was located at a nearby farm doing what she was meant to do: herding sheep.
Tilly, a border collie-red heeler mix, flew out the car’s back window when Linda Oswald and her family got into an accident with another vehicle. The family saw the dog, stunned, standing on the side of the road, but before they could collect Tilly, she ran away.
The Oswalds put up fliers and sent out social media posts asking for help finding Tilly. For two days, they got no good leads. Then Tyler, Travis and Zane Potter answered a Facebook post about the lost dog, saying she was at their family farm trying to herd the farm’s sheep.
“I think that dog was trying to herd,” Travis Potter said. Oswald said that if the Potter’s hadn’t called, Tilly would still be trying to figure out how herding worked.
