ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - A rescued former sled dog is back with her shelter buddy after going missing for 10 days in the woods.

The Aspen Times reports (https://bit.ly/1U5c2VT) Aspen Animal Shelter took in 13-year-old Cleo from a Snowmass Village business where the former owner was convicted of misdemeanor animal cruelty.

Cleo had been adopted days before she went missing May 22.

People posted signs, put up reward money and used pet psychics, a drone, and social media.

Kayaker Denise Handrich contacted the shelter after spotting Cleo along the Roaring Fork River and sharing a power bar with the slightly-underweight dog.

Shelter director Seth Sachson says Cleo likes spending time with another dog from the Snowmass Village business.

Sachson said the shelter is the best place for Cleo at this stage of her life.
