Lost dog’s mate helps lure Blainey from bush
The Karratha community united with volunteers to help find a dog that had been missing for eight days.
The three-year-old small mixed-breed Blainey escaped from foster care after being brought up from Carnarvon, disappearing on May 13 in Nickol West.
SAFE founder Sue Hedley said people kept seeing Blainey after she “went bush”.
“Our SAFE Carnarvon co-ordinator Mary Geyer thought the only way to get her back would be by bringing up another dog that had shared the same house,” she said.
Ms Geyer said after Blainey moved to Karratha, she found out Mahli, a red heeler cross, was from the same house in Carnarvon. Ms Geyer arrived last Monday and went to Nickol West, where Blainey was sighted.
“As we were looping around the bush so she could get the smell of Mahli, she double-backed and bolted straight over, crying,” Ms Geyer said.
