A vehicle rollover on Highway 1806 separated one owner from her dog and best friend.
Reporter Sarah Gustin has the unique story of how the two became reunited 5 long days later.
This pair couldn't be happier to be back together.
6AM Sunday--Donna Whicker of North Carolina, rolled her car about 10 miles south of Huff when trying to avoid a deer.
While she hung upside in her vehicle, Dazee took off.
I figured after the first night, she had gotten eaten by a fox. She's about four pounds. She would make a nice tasty snack for somebody.
36 hours later a group driving back from the casino found a 3 pound, chocolate chiwawa in the ditch.
Not knowing who she belonged to, they brought her here, to Mandan Running's, hoping to find someone who could help.
(Debbie March / Jillian's Haven Volunteer) "When they saw me, I was buying cat food in the aisle and they just said, I looked like someone who would know what to do. I am an animal lover. so they just choose me for some reason, and I just happened to live next to Coni."
Coni runs Jillian's Haven Animal Rescue.
For days, Coni watched lost and found ads and made calls, but began to wonder if Dazee would ever find her way home.
Friday Coni saw this poster hanging at the vet clinic.
(Coni Couch / Jillian's Haven Animal Rescue) "I looked at the picture and I knew right away it was her. And I got all excited and said, that's Dazee, that's Dazee!. And I read what happened and said, while I will call. So I called and she just went nuts!"
The rest is history.
(Donna Whicker / From North Carolina, lost dog) "I was very depressed. I had been crying pretty much non stop since Sunday morning. And I am so thankful because she means so much to me."
If I could reach out to the people who chased her down in the field, I don't know how to thank you because you really, she's a really special animal. You saved her life and maybe saved mine.
Whicker says Dazee's welcome home meal was her favorite--chicken, followed by a T-bone steak the next night.
