According to Wednesday's publication of the Chicago Tribune, the dog who disappeared near the Chicago, Ill., Midway airport last Friday has been found.

On Friday afternoon, while on a potty break near the airport, the recently rescued dog, named "Madison," managed to slip free from her harness and bolt.

Madison, a Doberman mix, was reunited with her rescuers after a woman saw one of the lost dog fliers and realized that the dog she had picked up as a "stray," was the missing dog.

The happy news was shared on the Illinois Doberman Rescue Plus Facebook page on Wednesday morning:

MADISON HAS BEEN FOUND SAFE!!! A very nice lady in the neighborhood where she was last seen spotted her yesterday and coaxed her into the house. She saw a flier today and called us. One of the volunteers is on her way to get her now.

The woman stated that Madison appeared to be cold and hungry and she had managed to lure her into her garage. On Wednesday, when a volunteer with the rescue agency arrived to the woman's home, they found Madison curled up in blankets.

The good Samaritan will be given the $1,000 reward which was offered for Madison's safe return and Madison will now be able to continue on to her final destination in Wisconsin.
