One dog lost, one dog found

November 28th, 2016 by Mike

Update: Same dog, home now.

Karri emails this morning:

“‘Hercules’ ran out of the house this morning from 9212 8th Ave. N.E. He has a serious medical condition and needs medication twice a day.

If you see him, he likely will come for food and any food is OK to feed him.

Please call Dave at 206 854 3052 if you see or have him. Thank you!

And over at Nextdoor Northgate/Maple Leaf Sarah writes:

“While walking my own dog this morning, I found a tagless shivering pom/chihuahua mix (I think) running in the street at Northeast  94th Street and Eighth Avenue Northeast.

“I took him to the local vet and they found no microchip. I’ve posted on craigslist, knocked on doors, and walked around near where I found him. Anyone know this doggy?”

Missing black lab Maya

July 27th, 2016 by Mike

Update: Maya is home.

Tori emails:


“Her name is Maya, she is a 6-month-old, medium (30 lbs), black labradoodle. She jumped the fence at Grandma’s house near Sacajawea Playground Northeast 94th Street and 17th Avenue Northeast in the Maple Leaf neighborhood of Seattle at 10 a.m. (Tuesday).

“She was wearing a red harness but does not have tags or a microchip.

“My friends have only had her for a week. She is frightened of new people and cars so she will most likely run. Although she is very sweet if you can catch her.

Yellow dog spotting in Maple Leaf

August 31st, 2015 by Mike

Jenette emails:

A large yellow Lab/Dane (?) mix is roaming near Northeast 92nd/94th near Roosevelt Way Northeast. He seems anxious but friendly and starts to bark and growl if you approach him.

He is wandering through yards so definitely seems lost. Here is the best picture we could get of him at 12:15 p.m. on Monday, hanging out on a porch before moving on to other yards.

He is wearing a yellow/orange collar with a brass tag but we could not get close enough to get information off of it. He has one floppy ear and one upright.

Feel free to call 2067941030 if you need any other info! Sorry we couldn’t catch him 🙁
