The dog, named Jeff, is back at the Paws-itive Partners Humane Society after leading members on a chase spanning two counties.

Jeff escaped a yard in late December and made his way from North Platte to Farnam and eventually Brady. There he was picked up and taken to Westfield Small Animal Clinic for treatment and recuperation.

According to the Paws-itive Partners Facebook page, Jeff is relieved to be home -- safe and warm.
