Dog owner Femke Douglas said they realised as soon as they got out of the car that something was wrong.

The back canopy of their car was gone, and witnesses told them the dogs had run across the highway.

“They just ran and kept running,” Douglas said.

Their owners put out a public appeal. Eleven days later they found Roscoe wandering in the bushland at Ormeau and brought him back home to Tallebudgera.

But the hunt was still on for Storm.

“It was very quiet on the Storm side,” Douglas said.

“It was very concerning that we didn’t hear anything. “No one saw him, you start to think the worst-case scenario.”

There were sightings of the red heeler between Pimpama and Yatala.

His family never gave up hope and said their helped keep their spirits up.

“It was beautiful that we had a Facebook group that quickly grew to around 600 members,” Douglas said.

“Every day there were updates, people looking and invested.

“That was very reassuring.”

Then on Wednesday, after 16 days, a breakthrough.

“We got a call that he was in someone’s backyard,” Douglas said.

“He was there and he had been there a couple of nights before without them knowing he was missing.”

The dogs certainly seem happy to be home, Douglas said.

“They very much want to stay with us and they’re not leaving us at all.”

The Douglas family can’t thank the hundreds in the community who kept an eye out enough.

“We couldn’t have done it without them,” Douglas said.

The wandering dogs’ journey in the wild, finally over.
