Dog who slipped harness at Midway Airport found safe

Madison the Doberman

A dog rescued in Texas but lost at Midway Airport after slipping from her harness has been found safe and is on her way to a new home in Wisconsin.

Madison the Doberman was found in the Brighton Park neighborhood. A woman, who recognized the dog from the flyer, was able to coax the dog into her garage Tuesday night near 38th and Spaulding.

Members of the Illinois Doberman Society went to get the dog, and saw that she had a distinctive scar that matched Madison’s, according to Larissa Gavin, a volunteer who rescued Madison.

Gavin plans to send the woman who found her a $1,000 reward that had been offered.

Members of the Illinois Doberman Society are now taking Madison to her original destination, her adoptive home in Elkhorn, Wis.

Madison had been missing since Friday.
