A very happy p1percub and her dog Jack, right after his joyous return home.

Redditor p1percub loves going running with her dog Jack. They and a (human) friend were playing around in a big, fenced-off field 4 days ago with no one else around (Jack is probably a rescued bait dog and doesn't like being around other dogs yet), when they got too close to a gap in the fence and Jack, thinking they were playing a game, bolted through the fence and into the street. He ran across the street, so p1percub's friend whistled for him to come back. As Jack turned around though, the traffic light turned and Jack was hit by a truck, and the "jerk" driving it sped off.


Jack got up immediately but, obviously scared, he ran off faster than p1percub could follow. Distraught, she called authorities and of course, turned to reddit. Redditors responded with tons of advice, but more importantly, people in the Houston area where p1percub and Jack lived promised to keep their eyes peeled after p1percub gave them this picture:

Yeah. Yeah, that's a pretty friggin' great-looking dog I suppose.

Sure enough, redditor Hominine had heard the story and saw Jack in the parking lot of a grocery store. He attempted to approach Jack, but the scared pooch ran off again—but this time back into the big fenced-off grassy area that he and p1percub had been playing in originally. Jack was still sprinting around in the area and hard to keep track of.
