Update: Bailey Settles In At Home [Photos]

The dog's three days in the cold sparked searches across town. He was found by his family and his brother dog Frankie.

Update, Sunday, Dec. 15:

Owner Ivy Pearson sent Newtown Patch these photos of Bailey settling in at home and spending time with his brother Frankie after being lost for three days and nights of cold and snow.

Original Story, Dec. 13:

Newtown Patch has just learned that Bailey, the dog lost in Sandy Hook since Dec. 10, has been found.

"We took our other dog Frankie out with us, and he saw him and went to him," she said. "We saw him sniffing his trail ... He knew the smell and took off a little bit, and Bailey was able to stop and see him."

He was found in the Shady Rest area, and appears to be fairly healthy considering his extended time in the freezing cold. Pearson said he had a bloody ear and a possibly injured paw, and would be heading to the vet soon.

"But we just want to give him a million hugs first," she said.

Bailey, who lives on Pearl Street in Sandy Hook, had been missing since Tuesday night and lost in the snow. Search groups combed the area, including Pack Leaders Rescue of Connecticut and Newtown Animal Control, laying bacon traps to lure Bailey in.

Bailey's family told Patch they'll send along photos as soon as they've had a chance to get him home and settle in.
