BANGOR, Maine — A puppy missing since Wednesday when it bolted from its family in Bangor was found Sunday night hungry and tired but unharmed.

Rooster, a 6-month-old Aussie mix, ran into the outstretched arms of a woman who previously had provided a foster home for him, according to Cassandra Lang, who owns a dog rescue organization called Pack Life.

“We were in the woods every night but had no idea where to look until we started getting the sighting tips,” said Lang, who said response to posters that were hung all over Bangor and a story last week in the Bangor Daily News was very strong. “He’s perfectly fine and doesn’t have a scratch on him.”

Rooster was part of a litter brought to Maine by Pack Life from Texas earlier this year. He bolted from his new adoptive family Wednesday when they were buying supplies for him at a pet store on Stillwater Avenue.
