    A dog that escaped from her handlers at Midway International Airport and ran free for several days last January has found a permanent home.

    Madison was rescued from a Texas puppy mill and was on her way to Wisconsin for treatment when she became spooked by a noise at the airport and bolted into the frigid conditions. She was discovered five days later by a resident in the neighborhood.

    Officials with the Veterinary Specialty Center in Buffalo Grove say the mixed doberman underwent surgery for a fractured vertebra that doctors say was lucky didn't sever her spine.

    She has been placed with a family in St. Louis and will head to her new home next week.

    Madison's litter of puppies was sent to a Doberman rescue organization in Colorado.
