Recently rescued dog still missing in Chicago

A recently rescued dog, who ran away during a transport, is still on the run in the Chicago, Ill., area after slipping from her harness at the MidWay Airport on Friday.

The dog, a Doberman mix named "Madison," bolted during a potty break at the airport; she was in the midst of a transport between Texas and her destination in Elkhorn, Wis.

The Illinois Doberman Rescue is heading up the local search effort - keeping searchers apprised of developments on their Facebook page and posting fliers in the area.

On Monday, the rescue agency shared the following update:

No word overnight. Volunteers went to the neighborhoods and industrial areas around MDW to post more fliers and talk to people. The large train/truck yard near where she was last seen was covered, and everyone working there was alerted over the radios to keep an eye out. We checked all of the pavilions at Chicago Animal Control just in case. Still no sightings. People are offering to get a trap or a tracker, but we can’t use those until we have another sighting.

Anyone who sees Madison is advised not to chase her as she is frightened and will run. Instead, please call and report any potential sightings to 847-277-1082.
