Vader ran off

Vader took off yesterday. I was taking him outside, he was on his leash, he sat and waited until I said, "good baby", so we cold begin our walk. Instead, he lunged forward, I wasn't able to hang onto his leash, and he was gone! I couldn't find him anywhere. I was so afraid he would get caught on something because his leash was still hooked to his collar, or hit by a car, or taken....While inside, checking in w/ hubby (at work), someone tied him to his run in our yard. Wish I knew who to thank. He is chipped, but somewhere/sometime on his "adventure", his tags were lost. I have to be more careful!!! I'd never forgive myself if something happened to him. He's always been impulsive, but when did he get so strong?

Don't know how old he is but his impulsiveness may decrease with age. And training. This is one of those events that can (should?) get you enthused about training so that he comes back to you when you call him.
