Fort Meade's Fire Dog Runs Off, Is Found
The mascot for the Fort Meade Fire Department was spooked by Wednesday night's fireworks and ran off. He was found Thursday morning.
The Fort Meade Fire Department's canine mascot, Bo, ran off Wednesday after the fireworks show and was missing for nearly 15 hours.
The fire department spent the night searching for the young German Shepherd and Labrador Retriever mix, who took over as the department's mascot last fall.
Capt. John Trottman of the Fort Meade Fire Department said they found Bo (alternatively spelled "Beau") outside the installation gates shortly before 1 p.m.
According to Fort Meade's Facebook page, Bo bolted from the fire station and was seen exiting the Mapes Road and Highway 32 gate.
