From Doylestown (Wayne County, Ohio) Police Department:
Jet is our retired K9. She is a black German Shepherd and lives with her handler in the State St./Romig Rd. area. She managed to escape from her crate and out a partially open window/screen sometime Sunday evening. She is friendly, but by this time she is probably scared. Please share this post with anyone who may live, work, or travel in the State St./Romig Rd. area. If seen or located please do not attempt to capture, contact our dispatch at 330.658.2771, and ask to be connected to the officer on duty. A reward is being offered.
This is Lucy, who has been big news here in Canton, Ohio. I wanted to share her sweet story with you.
The saga started when Lucy’s family drove to Canton for the Pro Football Hall of Fame celebration. Unfortunately, they were involved in a car wreck, which (of course) scared the beejeesus out of Lucy, so she ran from the crash site and hid. Continue reading Lost and Found→
You’ve seen the kids on the side of milk cartons. Recently, a Florida brewery announced they would be putting lost dogs on the sides of beer cans. And they had at least one success! What a sweet story.
From our friends at JustSomething.co: When your dog runs away, you are understandably relieved to see said dog playing nearby. As was the Krier family when Bo left their home and stayed gone overnight. Continue reading New Friends→
April 23rd is National Lost Dog Awareness Day, a good day to check your dog’s tags and chip registry to make sure everything is up to date. Are the tags legible? Do both the tags and the registry have your cell number? If you have or had a landline, you may have that info still listed.
If your dog is not micro-chipped, today might be the day to call around and find out where you can get it done inexpensively. Or check on line for special events in your area where they may be inserting chips at very low cost.
When was the last time you walked your fence line looking for weak spots that may become escape routes in the future?
You should also inspect your leashes, collars, and tie-outs to make sure nothing is getting frayed.
Do you have a current picture of your dog along with his or her current weight and height? That can be important if you have to post flyers or advertise your lose online.
I’m hoping you never need these precautions, but better safe than sorry.
Meet Pumpkin, the little dog who got lost in New Mexico and ended up in Georgia. 11Alive in Atlanta reports that compassionate people and a microchip were instrumental in the dog’s return to family.
Pumpkin had been wandering around Allatoona Landing Marina for weeks when Annette Hatt noticed him and took him home. She connected with Kathy Lee Russell on a lost animals page, and Kathy agreed to board Pumpkin and have him vetted. The good folks at Animal Hospital of Towne Lake found out that the 7-year old Lhasa Apso was not only healthy, but was also microchipped.
Meanwhile, back in New Mexico, Manny Ornelas had been searching for his dog for months after the pup had been stolen from his yard in November.
Georgia-based Ruff Redemption Rescue provided Pumpkin with a plane ride home, where a very happy and relieved family greeted him at the airport.
