Dog Rescued in Indiana After 25 hours in Frigid Cold

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP)-  A California couple is thanking animal control officers who rescued their dog after it spent 25 hours wandering in bitter cold after a housekeeper accidentally released the pooch from their Indiana hotel room.

The 3 1/2-year-old Belgian Malinois named Sahara is back with Nick Hoeh and Rick Dunkle after her ordeal in Lafayette, where the couple recently moved from California.

Hoeh tells the Journal & Courier ( ) Sahara is “really tired and really cold.''

Animal control officers found the shivering canine Wednesday in a Lafayette resident's backyard following several sightings.

A hotel housekeeper accidentally released Sahara from the couple's hotel room Tuesday. The couple is staying at that hotel because a burst pipe damaged the new Lafayette home they had just purchased. The couple had saved Sahara from an abusive home.
