Yesterday we reported that Junebug, a rat terrier, had been lost after escaping from the yard. The owner informs us that she has been found:

Call off the search. A very nice neighbor (3 blocks away) brought her back this afternoon. The neighbor even took her to the pumpkin patch today with their kids before they saw the flyers that I hung up all over the neighborhood. If you felt inclined or are able, you should write something good about this neighborhood and the regular old workin’ folk who have warm hearts and good families.

Also, the two missing boxers from last week have been found.

Another reader told us a story about a group of people at the dog park that helped re-unite a dog with its owner:

We were at the lovely MLT dog park yesterday afternoon and noticed a dog walking along the fence on the outside of the park. He wasn’t on a leash and nobody came calling for him. We all agreed to bring him inside the park and take a look at his tags. One woman had a cell phone and another woman read the phone number on the tag out loud to her while she called the owner.

The dog had gotten out of the yard and came to the dog park! I was happy to see the community work together to help this sweet dog out. Within minutes the owner was at the park thanking everyone.

Dogs shouldn’t be wondering around town without leashes. Yes, some people let the dogs wonder but for most cases this usually means that someone is missing their dog. If you see a dog wondering around, take a few minutes and make someone’s day.
