Millie foster dog on the loose

Date: Wed, 18 Mar 2009 09:42:13 -0700
From: cathryn.l.manion@bofasecurities.com
Subject: Millie foster dog on the loose- please cross post

An unsocialized foster dog pushed through a sliding screen door last night, pulled it entirely off the tracks and is currently at large in the Northbrook, IL area. She was last spotted at 7:30am this morning (Wed) on Dundee and Midway Roads at the corporate office building.

Local police, foster mom and neighbors chased her until 3am and were able to get about 10 feet from her. She is crossing busy 4 lane roads, is less than a mile from I-94, next to a railroad track and not responding to treats at all. She is completely unsocialized after spending her life in a dog run and likely does not know where the foster house is. She has a pink collar and red leash on from a walk earlier in the night.
Millie is in a lot of danger and we are worried about her safety, please cross post. Do not attempt to catch her if she does not come to you willingly, please call me.

Please contact me immediately if you see her.
Many Thanks,
Katie Manion

Lucky Dog


Little Guy Needs A Home

This is my friend Josh's dog Kaiser, a 5-year-old Wirehaired Dachshund...

Sadly, Josh & his wife are being relocated cross-country, and aren't allowed to keep a dog at their new place, so Kaiser needs a good, loving home.

The little guy is very sweet & gentle, and is great with children. He's 15 pounds, up to date on all of his shots and microchipped. If you (or someone you know) might be able to welcome him into your family, please e-mail me at jblaque@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Missing Greyhound - Chicago, IL - Lincoln Park area

Missing greyhound!

Watson escaped from his yard on Belden in Chicago at 1AM on Wednesday morning - 12/10/08. He is a big red brindle boy, wearing his collar. Watson is a very friendly, personable boy.

Please call 847-421-9828 or 312-502-8704 if you can help search. We will tell you where to go to get supplies and directions. Please call BEFORE you go out. You will need a can of cat food or tuna, a squawker, duct tape or staple gun, your dog, a map of the area and a cell phone.

There was excellent sighting today, Tuesday at 2:30PM! Here is the plan for 12/24 and 12/25. We are moving the search area east near St. Joseph’s Hospital and the jogging trail. You need to go to 510 W. ARMITAGE, (just west of Lincoln Ave) to get GREEN flyers and assignments.

He was last seen at the Diversey Driving Range frolicking in the snow around a statue of a golf club!

Our search area will be Armitage to the south, Addison to the north, Lincoln Park Zoo area to the east and west to Halstead.

We also need folks to take 30 minutes to remove the yellow flyers in the Logan and Buck Town areas. If you see a yellow flyer, remove it and replace it with a green flyer.

This boy seems to be having a really good time in the snow. Should you spot him, DON’T chase him. Run the other way and attempt to play instead of capture. Be sure to bring good smelling food/treats to entice him!

We have to get this boy home to Elizabeth for Christmas!

Dogo Argentino
Large Adult Male Dog
Chicagoland Bully Breed Rescue, Chicago, IL

More About Vinny:
You must complete an application at www.chicagopitbulls.org to get the adoption process started!!

My name is Vinnie! I am a sweet boy who wound up in a shelter as a stray. After careful examination by a vet, it has been determined that my ears, tail and leg were all HOME amputations. That's right folks, someone lopped my leg off on their own. Unfortunately, humans don't understand me very well so I can't tell them what exactly happened...although I don't think I want to remember that.

I'm doing well and love to shake paw - of course with my amputated leg! The rescue was approached about my condition and they were told that I am a good candidate for a prosthetic leg. How cool would that be!!?? I will definitely be one looker with a titanium leg.

The rescue is trying to raise money to help with this specific project so any donations would be greatly appreciated. Contact the rescue for more info!
