I really hope you are able to find her! If I saw a small chi running alone in the snow, I would definitely grab them and take them inside. Odie escaped once when just my husband and brother-in-law were home while I was at school and my husband said he was running around like a maniac and after awhile he started crying because we live by a busy road and he was sure something had happened to her. He turned a corner and saw one of our neighbors carrying her. Thank God.
Even though Odie now knows the stay command, I don't take any chances and we have a small gate up so she can't even access the stairs that lead to our door.
It happens to the best of us. I have friends who are professional exotic animal trainers and their dogs are so extremely well trained, but even they sometimes slip up when instinct kicks in.
