This is Joey. He is a five-year old shibu inu. He is from Malvern over near Malvern Prep but got out for the first and only time March 28 when a door blew open. He has been seen as far away as Hershey’s Mill to Boot Road to Airport Road to Morstein, Collegeview and so on.
His owners know he is alive and his mom works at Canine Creature Comforts. He was seen yesterday around Nottingham Road.
He is scared out of his wits. He looks like a fox. Please help him come home. Call owners if you see him and if you get him in a fenced in back yard please call owners – BUT use caution when approaching because he is scared and skittish.
I wish I had better news to share. But I just received this message from the person that asked me to post about Blue the dog in the first place. I am in tears and it is not even my dog:
Hi, not sure if you saw the post I shared, but poor Blue was found on the side of a major highway…. Broken back and not going to make it… He got to see his owner, hear her voice and die in her arms😔
RIP BLUE. People – no one likes to hit someone’s pet, but if you could slow down and be more aware of your surroundings on roads, and if you accidentally hit someone’s dog or cat and can safely pull over and call the police, please do or call them at a later time if you can’t safely pull over.
I have a dog with three legs. She has three legs because she accidentally got out when she was little before she was part of my family. If it hadn’t been for the wonderful Westtown East Goshen police, she would be dead. Again this was a case of someone hitting a dog and not stopping.
It happened to my sister as well. Only she lost her dog. I also watched it happen twice in my old neighborhood, in broad daylight, and the people did not slow down or stop – they took off.
Please, even if you can’t save the animal, at least let someone know you accidentally hit it.
I was asked to post this. Blue was lost Nov 30th at 4pm from French Creek in the 2400 block of Saint Peters Road. Pottstown, PA. He is a 5yr old Lab Chow mix. Please if you have seen this dog call these people ASAP!!!!
UPDATE 8.14.2012:POSH HAS BEEN LOCATED AND IS REPORTEDLY DOING WELL!
I received this from my friend Stevie at Main Line Animal Rescue this morning about a missing dog. If you have seen her, please don’t be shy and use the contact numbers I am about to post:
Posh is a St. Croix dog. She is a friendly, sweet dog who loves to run! There have been no sightings since Sunday, 8/5 – please, if you live in the Paoli/Berwyn area, keep an eye out. Contact numbers for this search are: 484.961.0859 or 610.933.0606 – call them if you can assist with search too.
If you have ever heard a volunteer at MLAR talk about the “Posh” Squad” you should know it is named for the famous “POSH”, the escaping dog! Well, she is missing again in Malvern/Paoli/Berwyn area (since 8/5/12) If you spot her or have any idea where she is PLEASE call us, we are worried sick!!!
Posh, German Shepherd/Lab mix has been missing since Sunday evening, has on her invisible fence collar and tags. She is spayed and microchipped as well. There have been no sightings yet. She ran away from her home on Devon Road in Paoli. She is friendly but is a RUNNER!
I am also going to comment on a comment I received about aren’t Main Line Animal Rescue owners vetted so things like this do not happen. Yes of course owners are vetted in advance, but accidents do happen. And dogs, like it or not, can occasionally get out. Please people! This is a missing dog and the family is distraught!
I realize people still have *issues* on how strict some rescues are, including MLAR, but it is with good reason – top of the list is you want a rescued animal to go home and become part of a forever family and not end up back in the system. My sister volunteers with the ASPCA in NYC and I can tell you they are strict too. I know other rescues, including breed specific ones which are also strict. Chester County SPCA has rules too.
People love to gripe about rescue paperwork and yes it is a pain in the ass, but it is the right thing to do. A real life example is a little female dachshund I met recently when over at Main Line Animal Rescue. She was there a few years ago and went home with a lovely woman. The woman died and her widower put the dog back in rescue because he has a new life or something that did not include his deceased wife’s pet. I find his behavior personally morally reprehensible, but because of the paperwork they did this dog ended up back at Main Line Animal Rescue where she was from and they already knew about her, etc. Now she waits for a new forever home. And she is safe and happy.
Adopt don’t shop and if you see Posh, PLEASE call the numbers above. I can’t imagine how her humans are feeling and chances are she is out there scared and just wanting her humans at this point. This dog is a runner, pure and simple. It doesn’t mean anything other than she is an accomplished escape artist. It happens. I have owned dogs like this.
