"I'M LOST AND 75 MILES FROM HOME!!I MAY NEED MY MEDICINE!!
MOST OF ALL, I NEED MY FAMILY..."
MALE ALASKAN HUSKY - BLACK AND WHITE - FIXED - BLUE EYES
MISSING SINCE JULY 7 TH
ORIGINALLY LOST AT THE "TEKON" RESTAURAUNT, TEKONSHA, MI
PHONE DAY OR NIGHT
LAST SEEN AT 505 E GIRARD ( JUST BEFORE THE BIG HILL),GIRARD, MI
THE RESIDENTS WERE ADVISED ,BY A NEIGHBOR ,THAT THE OWNER WAS LOOKING
AND THAT HE WAS EXPECTED AT THE HUMANE SHELTER,
AND THE DOG THEN CAME UP MISSING.
THE RESIDENT REFUSES TO RETURN MY PHONE CALLS, AND EVEN ASKED FOR HER ADDRESS
NOT TO BE GIVEN TO ME.
SEVERAL LOCAL RESIDENTS SAW HIM AT THE RESIDENCE,
AND ONE KNEW OF HER TAKING HIM FROM THE TEKON TRUCKSTOP WHERE HE WAS ORIGINALLY LOST.
I ASSUME THE DOG IS BEING KEPT SOMEWHERE IN THE AREA.
PERHAPS SOME WELL-INTENTIONED, UNKNOWING,
FAMILY WE'D HOPE. BUT MY DOG WAS SEEN HELD ON A
FOUR FOOT CHAIN ,IN THE SUN, AT THE E GIRARD RESIDENCE.
THEY WERE SEEN TO WALK HIM ONLY ONE TIME.
CODY IS NOT A DOG WITH PAPERS, HE'S NOT WORTH ANY MONEY.
HE WAS BORN WITH DISTEMPER AND THEN BECAME SEVERALLY MALNUTRITIONED.
HIS BONES WERE FORMING CROOKED AND CRIPPLED IN HIS LEGS.
THE ENAMAL ON HIS TEETH NEVER FORMED PROPERLY AND IS MISSING
A FRONT CANINE AND A FEW MORE ALREADY.
HIS PAW PADS ARE VERY HARD AND CRACK UNLESS THEY ARE TREATED.
AND THERE IS ALWAYS THE CHANCE OF AN EPILEPTIC SEIZURE,
ALL CONDITIONS BROUGHT ON BY THE DISTEMPER, AND
A LACK OF CONCERN OVER THE WELL-BEING OF AN ANIMAL.
CODY'S LIFE HAS BEEN SUCH A STRUGGLE TO END LIKE THIS, TAKEN BY AN
UNCARING STRANGER FROM THE ONE PLACE HE KNEW HIS PEOPLE WOULD FIND HIM.
The latest on this sad story?? Cody was seen 6 weeks ago
by a lady and her child 8 or 9 miles from
the woman's house who stole him. He was playing with her 4 year old,
VERY dirty, and
limping on his back leg.She had seen my flyer and phoned me.
When Cody saw her, he put his head down and left,
scared of her. Someone has severally hurt my dog, he loved
everyone before.He has been fending for himself
up there in those woods.He comes and eats food the lady
has been so kind to sit out hoping he'll come back
and want to come inside, but she hasn't seen him, only the empty bowl
of food.Hunting season is open
now, and Nov. 14 th starts shotgun season.He looks so much
like a wild dog, I fear for his life big time.
We are organizing a "search Party" to go into the woods
with permission and make an all out attempt
to draw him in. I just cant give up on him
while there's a chance he is out there.
|NOV20th-I've camped out in the
woods.I slept on the ground,I wandered around calling his
but only in vain....The kids walked the woods with me sometimes.I drove the neighborhood
with every spare moment I had.I sometimes didn't even go home. Nothing,no sign not a trace.
It is getting colder now,and hunting season is on.I can no longer walk the woods looking and
calling out to him.
DEC12th-I managed to meet a man.He and I have fallen in love.He wants me to move to Idaho with
him.I know I will never see my dog again if I go.....But I will go....And it isn't easy,I know I
will always think of Cody,and wonder if he is trying to find me still....But I have to go.
It would have been so wonderful for him, a huge yard and wilderness behind it for
him to run and enjoy.
FEB27th-I have been in Idaho for 9 weeks now, and not a day goes by that I do not see his cute
little fuzzy face in my mind.I expect him to come running to the door any minute,but that will not happen.
If only those horrible people in Michigan had taken him to the shelter,he would be with us...At night,
I dream I am in the woods,calling his name......Once I thought,if only I could hug him one more time...
and I dreamed he was there,it seemed so real,he came and hugged me,and was gone.
I will always love Cody,and no dog can replace him.If by some miracle,he is found,we
will send him all the way here on an airplane.
Please take the time to call the shelter if you find a lost animal.The life you save may be theirs.
