ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - An injured dog that escaped a veterinary hospital in Englewood on Monday was captured Tuesday afternoon.
Tao, a 7-year-old Akita mix, escaped while the technician was trying to move her from the MRI building to a van.
"She pulled loose and ran away," said Laurel Burritt, whose mother owns the dog.
Tao was found nearby, in the outdoor shopping mall area, near Hampden and Santa Fe, according to the Buritt family.
A security guard kept an eye on her until vet techs and Tao's family arrived.
Tao is back with the veterinarians and is on IV fluids. She was scheduled for surgery on Wednesday morning.
