Volunteers find rescued Dalmatian who ran from foster home

FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla. – One of the 21 Dalmatians rescued from a Yulee home on Monday ran away from its foster family prompting a search by volunteers.

The dog, which had last been seen in Fernandina Beach around Lime and 14th Streets, was later found, according to Paw Paws Pet Rescue.

Volunteers said they did not know if the dog could hear, explaining that most Dalmatians are deaf. 

Eleven Dalmatians were transported Saturday to a South Florida rescue group.

Twenty-one Dalmatians were found Monday in an old, cluttered, filthy property in Yulee. News4Jax was told the dogs were owned by an older man who just couldn't take care of them anymore.

The 10 dogs not sent to a South Florida Dalmatian rescue group will stay in Northeast Florida to be fostered until they're ready for adoption.
