She eventually made her way back to the harbour and I saw her there later that evening, where I also met her owner and did mention her coming over to our tent (paranoid that someone might have seen her walking with us and thinking I was stealing her).
Thankfully he was fine, and later on I spent a little more time with her outside.

If I ever visit return to the island, I hope to see her again.
