Lost Dog, beagle-black lab mix named Chloe
  • elbartels December 15, 2013 - 10:41 am #95571 Reply

    We left our dog, Chloe, with a friend in the Lyon Village area. Chloe escaped from 1967 N. Adams St. Saturday, Dec. 14 around 6:30 p.m.  She was reportedly grazed by a car near Whole Foods and ran off. She was last seen somewhere between Whole Foods and Lee Highway.

    Chloe is mostly black with a white tip on her tail, white “socks” on her paws (longest sock is on the front left paw) and a white chest and belly. She has medium-length floppy ears. She has a small amount of brown on her, too. She’s 12 years old, may be injured, and is very friendly but is probably scared.

    Please call 312-307-7075 if you have her, or call the Animal Welfare League at 703-931-9241. Unfortunately, my husband and I are going out of town, but we have lots of in the area people who can and will pick her up ASAP.  She had her collar on with a tag (name, address, phone number) and she has a microchip, too. Thanks!

    Chloe is a black lab/hound mix last seen in northern Lyon Village area (between Whole Foods and Lee Highway). If you have her, please call 312-307-7075 or call the Animal Welfare League of Arlington.

    I live in right up the street from Whole Foods and will keep my eyes open for her.  Best of luck!

    Beautiful dog. For what it’s worth, I walked North Arlington from Ballston to Langston School yesterday morning and did not see her.

    This was posted at 11:30 AM on a neighborhood listserv:

     A beautiful LARGE black dog (a wolfhound?) was just cavorting on South Ivy street near 7th

    I’ll post the owner/telephone info on the listserve.

    Thanks, everyone, for keeping an eye out for her. We haven’t found her yet, but we’re holding out hope and doing everything we can along with you. Again, my phone number is 312-307-7075.

    I hope you find her! Hopefully the tag and microchip will help bring her home!

    Have you notified the other shelters in the area, not just Arlington AWL? They don’t necessarily share info with each other.

    We did — filed reports with both Alexandria and Fairfax County. A friend is heading over to Arlington to check to see if she’s there, even though we’ve been checking their intake reports online. More flyers going out, more people searching. Thanks for your concern. And other tips are welcome, too!

    TIP to readers:  Take out your cellphone and enter elbartel’s number in it under something you will easily recall like “LOSTDOG” or “LOSTDOG BLACK”.  The phone number is 312-307-7075

    I do this when passing lost animal flyers, otherwise never have number when need it.

    Good luck!

    Or take a picture of the sign.

    Thanks, Dezlboy and Swag. We’re still doing everything we can. Her dog walker, the pet sitter (yeah, separate people) and a dog tracker are going out this afternoon, and we’re still flyer-ing, calling shelters, visiting shelters, Craigslist, Facebook and everything else we can think of.

    Good luck. I’ve been out with dog trackers and have had great sucess.  Track the dog, put out a human trap (cage with food), and hopefully…..

    If I may take this opportunity (and I am NOT blaming the victim….), dog owners please check out http://www.tagg.com for a relatively inexpensive, GPS tracker that attaches to dog collar.

    We didn’t know about GPS dog collars.  Those didn’t exist when we adopted her 12 years ago from the Humane Society in Missouri. She is microchipped… I’ll buy a GSP tracker as soon as we get her back, promise!!

    I’m posting an update as a separate forum item to draw additional attention to this, but:  The dog tracker tracked Chloe to the driveway of the Cardinal House Condos, 3300 Spout Run in Arlington.  That condo complex reportedly does not allow dogs (not sure if this is totally true), so we’re hoping maybe it was a resident of a neighboring condo. I have friends going out to post flyers in that area now, and we’ll call the condo complex in the morning — they’re closed now and the emergency number answering service couldn’t help me out tonight.

    If anyone knows anyone who lives at that complex or a neighboring building, and you’re willing to get the word out somehow (flyer, email, anything), we’d really appreciate it.
