Around one year ago, a woman in my neighborhood lost her small Italian Greyhound. She was new to Buffalo then. I have never seen such dedication and perseverance in trying to find a lost pet. She placed ads, posters, online posts, classified ads, bulletin boards, etc. everywhere looking for him. At one point I emailed her to say I would be on the lookout. I always have a spare leash and doggy treats in my car, and also on walks.
A year has passed. She has begun her search once more. This makes perfect sense to me. I believe someone has her dog. I believe she would have her dog back if he had been found by someone HONEST enough to return him. I think this is a horrid, cruel "finders keepers, losers weepers" situation.
If her dog had been hurt or worse, I believe Animal Control, the Streets Dept.or the SPCA would have given her the awful news.
My heart is broken for her.
If anyone reading this lives in Buffalo NY or a surrounding area, please help. Information is posted in every PetSmart, PetCo, etc. and every smaller pet supply store I've visited, along with at least one veterinarian hospital. There's a recent post on the Buffalo NY Craigslist.
I don't know his owner, but I'm going to contact her again. She might even be a member here--I don't know.
Even if she isn't a member, she's one of us. Let's help her.
