Dog found in well 2 months after escaping from woman's home

Posted:

BOW, N.H. (AP) -- A 1-year-old black Labrador that escaped from its New Hampshire home in early September has been found stuck in a well and has been returned to its owner.

Eileen Ketcham says she was trying to put her dogs Lillie and Sunny inside her home in Bow for the night on Sept. 13 when they took off. She says Sunny was killed along a highway that night and Lillie couldn't be found.

On Nov. 1, Adam Cheney was hunting in an obscure wooded area when he heard a dog barking in the distance. He discovered a very weak and emaciated Lillie stuck in a 5-foot-deep well, sitting in a foot and a half of water.

Lillie was eventually returned to Ketcham, who is nursing her back to health.
