So, what happened?! How did Sapphire go missing and what did you do?

My husband and Sapphire were walking in the woods when they saw a deer. They stopped to watch it, but when the deer ran away Sapphire took off chasing it and wrenched the leash out of Bill's hand. She is a husky, and they are famous escape artists, which is why we have the Fi collar.

When it became clear that Bill couldn't find her, and since it was raining and the sun would set soon, he tried to call me, but my ringer was off. He then came home and told me what happened. We immediately opened the Fi app and turned on lost dog mode. It showed us that she was still in the woods, not too far from a condo complex.

We then called non-emergency services and Zac agreed to meet us to help in the search. Everybody grabbed flash lights, as now it was dark, and met in the condo parking lot. Bill and Zac looked at the Fi app and where she was, and went in two different directions to find her. I stayed by the condo monitoring the Fi app.

I noticed that Sapphire had stopped moving. Then Zac called out that he had her! Her leash, which she had been dragging, had gotten tangled in a tree, and she was stuck. She wouldn't let Zac near her, but Bill found them, untangled her, and brought her home. I am so grateful that we had the Fi collar!!! I can't imagine trying to find her in the woods in the rain and the dark without it. This story might have had a very different ending. A thousand thanks to Zac and to Fi!
