Dog who escaped from PetSmart found dead

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - We have a sad update to a story we first told you about last week.

Shelby, the malti-poo who escaped from a Short Pump PetSmart, was found dead.

Her owners found her body Tuesday by the side of Interstate 64, behind Tom Leonard's.

You may remember, vets were checking out Shelby inside the store when she slipped out of her leash and ran out the automatic doors. The search lasted nearly a week.
