A dog who got loose Wednesday at Dallas Love Field was still missing Saturday night, the woman who rescued him says.

Duke, who Stephanie Hanson said she got on Sunday from a Houston shelter, was seen darting across the tarmac at Love Field on Friday night.

Video from Texas Sky Ranger showed the dog at about 5:30 p.m. running across airport property and along exterior fences, with authorities chasing it from behind.

Hanson said she spotted Duke, who is about 2 years old, Wednesday and sat outside feeding him in the rain, but he got scared and ran away. She said if chased, Duke will run away.

Hanson said she took Duke in as an animal rescue and plans to place him for adoption after he is trained and gets the proper care.

A runaway dog was seen darting across the airport tarmac at Dallas Love Field Friday evening.

Love Field officials said Duke has not slowed airport operations and they were working around the situation.

An airport official said any time an animal is on the airfield, they attempt to remove them safely. He added that coyotes were "common intruders."

If you see Duke, Hanson can be reached by calling 214-842-9623 or emailing steph@ifmoves.org.
