Reward for safe return of Chloe – beagle/black lab mix lost last weekend

    REWARD for safe return.

    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  seen somewhere between Whole Foods and Lee Highway in Lyon Village, and there are reports of her at N. Trinidad and N. Williamsburg (Tuesday/Wednesday) and possibly along John Marshall Drive near Overly pool (Wednesday/Thursday).

    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 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 ASAP if you see her. She had a black cloth collar on with a tag (name, address, phone number) and she has a microchip, too. Thanks!

    I’m so sorry you haven’t found her yet. :(  Have you also checked with the private rescue groups like Homeward Trails and Lost Dog? And have you posted her picture and info on all the groups’ Facebook pages? I read many of them regularly but don’t remember seeing her on there. Also, if you can get the info out on the local listservs, that might help.

    Keep your hopes up.  Do keep checking the Animal Shelters, Craigslists?  Chloe’s microchip should help….

    Word on our list serve is that she has been found safe.

    Is the Homeware Trails listserv correct? Is she back home? Please let us know!

    Homeward. Ugh.

    CHLOE IS HOME!  Thanks to everyone who helped post flyers, looked for her, gave advice and more.

    Homeward Trails was instrumental in the search effort (and if you haven’t given to a charity this year, they’re certainly worthy) — but ultimately a family found her in their backyard on North Calvert Street, just two blocks from where she ran off.  They were able to corner her and called the Animal Welfare League of Arlington (another worthy cause and thank you Officer Jennifer Kirk!).

    Nine days later, Chloe is tired, hungry and dirty -- but those are all fixable. What counts is that she’s home safe.

    I’m so glad to hear you found her!

    What a great Christmas present!  Thanks for the confirmation.  My I add that I’ve worked with Homeward Trails (on search parties) and they are one of the best Animal Rescue organizations.  And, in keeping with elbartels’ sentiment

    I volunteer at Homeward Trails (cat side of the house) and they are awesome. So glad you got her back in time to really celebrate the holidays!

    Nice to know that the “dog tracker” ended up being bullsh*t.

    Swag, respectfully disagree.

    I’ve accompanied dog tracker Sam Connelly  (Wash Post article http://tinyurl.com/mcvzrt9  ) and can attest to her tracker dog’s ability.  In one case (Sweetie – see in Post article) over a period of two or three weeks the dog was tracked (confirmed by sightings after posters went up in the tracked areas) and sighted by rescuers once the dog had settled into a specific area. Likely someone was feeding him.  The tracker set up motion sensor cameras for further confirmation, and then a humane trap (cage).  Unfortunately the dog (only a half block from the cage) was hit by a car.  :-(

    Sam donated all of her time spent tracking this dog – as she often did on behalf of rescue groups. Also she and the tracker dog locate lost hunters and hikers. I think (not sure) that Sam is not longer tracking due to health reasons.

    So, it’s been a couple months now. When are you going to take down all the flyers you posted?

    Fat chance that’s happening.
