A dog that was found two-provinces away from her original home in Saskatchewan is happy to be back home, says her owner.

William Delorme’s beloved rottweiler Brandi went missing June 19 from her home in Broadview, Saskatchewan. She was picked up at a gas station along the Trans-Canada Highway and taken all the way to Penticton, he said.

When she was recently taken to a Penticton veterinary clinic for a medical checkup, how her journey unfolded became more clear.

The individual who found (the dog) decided they wanted to keep her so they wanted a veterinarian to look her over,” according to a Penticton Dog Control release. “During the exam, they conveyed they had found the dog in another province and said it was a stray only wearing a collar, so they took it.”

The collar they showed the veterinarian had a dog license on it but the dog was now wearing a new harness that had a new name tag with a new name on it.

Delorme searched everywhere for Brandi, and eventually received a call from the Penticton vet about a week after her disappearance.

Brandi is a well-known escape artist and a smart cookie, she’s able to dig under fences, can hop over them and even knows when to ring the doorbell when she wants to come inside, he said.

“‘I’ve pretty much rebuilt my entire fence because she’ll go and test which fence one is the weakest and she’ll work that fence panel until she can get out.”

He’s just happy to have her home, and she is too.

“Brandi’s a very lovable dog, she is so friendly, it’s hard not to like her,” he said.

She breathed what appeared to be a sigh of relief, he said, upon arriving back to their home last weekend.

Now the three-year-old rottweiler doesn’t want to leave his side.
