A dog rescued from an icy, half-frozen creek was adopted Friday.
River, as he’s now being called, was spotted in a gulch at Bible Park earlier this month. His back end was stuck in the nearly frozen creek and he couldn’t move or get out of the water.
The Dumb Friends League said a passerby named Bob and two other people who happened to be at the park went into the frozen creek to rescue River. They got the dog out of the creek, wrapped him in a blanket and carried the 80-pound dog to Bob’s car. Bob took the dog to the Dumb Friends League. Continue reading
Nikita, a 3-year-old Siberian Husky, escaped from their yard in Chesapeake, Virginia
A 22-year-old Virginia Beach woman was arrested on Sunday after police say she fraudulently took a lost dog, listing it on Craigslist and getting caught attempting to sell it.
The owner of the 3-year-old Siberian Husky named Nikita says she escaped from their yard near Taylor Road in Chesapeake on Saturday morning around 10:00 a.m.
But, just when Nikita’s owner started losing hope, he says he found another lead in the search for his beloved pet.
“It blew me away. Until now, I would have never thought anyone would do that,” Josh King said.
GRACIE, a 9-year-old German shepherd/lab mix, was found Oct. 30 after missing for six days. She was found hiding underneath a house being built that is right across the street from her family’s home. Gracie is now back home.
“GRACIE IS HOME!!!!!!”
This is how Scott Wistrand’s Oct. 30 post on the Battle Ground, WA, Facebook page began.
The post, which went on to describe how, where and when the Wistrand family’s dog, Gracie had been found after missing for almost a full six days. Within the first few hours of the happy post being up on the page, it gained more than 330 “likes” and almost 100 comments.
When talking with The Reflector, Wistrand expressed his deep gratitude to the people of Battle Ground who sent his family words of encouragement, shared the photos and story of Gracie, and provided advice.
“It truly restores a person’s faith in people when they show they care so much about someone and someone’s pet they don’t even know,” he said.
Wistrand said he and his family woke up Sat., Oct. 25, and Gracie, a 9-year-old German shepherd/lab mix, was gone. The family canvassed the neighborhood, but Gracie was nowhere to be found. Continue reading
