Police capture NH dog that fled vet visit over a month ago

SOMERSWORTH- A dog that had fled a veterinary clinic and had been on the lam for over a month is back home.

Somersworth police were able to finally capture Rosie, a 1-year-old boxer, after a long absence.

The dog reportedly took off from Central Park Veterinary Clinic. Somersworth police Capt. Russ Timmons said Wednesday, "apparently she put it together and decided to make an escape and didn't really want to meet the vet."

After being on the loose for over a month, Rosie showed up near a local storage facility Friday, St. Patrick's Day. "As soon as she saw the nice police she decided to disappear," said Timmons.

"As Rosie was trying to avoid our heartfelt assistance, she managed to get into deep snow. She had some travel difficulty that allowed our officers to make her acquaintance," said Timmons.

According to Foster's Daily Democrat, the dog may have been injured during its time on the run and will need additional medical care.
