Post subject: Sophie was seen AGAIN Indianapolis, IN...need help!!! Reply with quote

Okay, I am starting to have no doubt that this is Sophie. I am so incredibly excited and scared at the same exact time. I know I'm only going to get her back if this goes extremely well, otherwise she would be running until she dies of starvation or being HBC.

If I say something weird in this post, I'm sorry, I'm a wreck right now. I just got a call today at lunchtime from the woman that owns a grooming parlor in Indianapolis, she said she saw Sophie on Sunday. She called me because of the flyer I mailed out to her (guess those worked after all!).

She was walking one of her grooming dogs on Sunday near a baseball field on Madison Ave. (near the intersection of S Madison and E Thompson). She said she saw a dog that she's almost sure was Sophie, the dog started following her but when the dog she was walking started barking at Sophie, she ran away. Sophie started heading south on Madison Ave. from there.
The woman said she regularly puts out food for feral cats in that area, so Sophie might have been mooching some food from there. I called her and asked her to please keep putting out food, I would repay her or whatever it takes. I'm hoping that Sophie will stay in that area since there is food available, but who knows. They haven't seen her since Sunday.

Tonight I'm going to organize a search this weekend, for those of you who offered to help. I'll email/PM you soon. I am planning on driving down there sometime this weekend. I hope to have a ton more flyers ready to be posted on telephone poles as well.

In the meantime, I need help...does anyone know of any place that for sure has a dog trap Sophie's size that I could borrow? I honestly think that's the only way we are going to catch her, it sounds like she is totally avoiding everyone.
I will call animal controls and such, but if anyone in that area has one or knows where I could borrow one from, that would be great.

Also, is there anyone else in the area that would be willing to help search for/hang up flyers for Sophie? I have potentially 2 people willing to help, if there are any more people that would be willing, I would appreciate it so much.

I will be calling AC right now to make sure they haven't picked a dog up in that area, I was informed by the groomer that AC isn't that far from that location and they've been "real active" in that area lately.

Thanks SO much guys, I'm freaking out here!!!!!!!!

Please Cross post this, if u will....

Good Luck Sophie! Snickers is a rescue dog and she knows what it is like to be left outside. We hope you find your way back home.

Hi Mates
We sure hope Sophie finds her way back home. Mum will put this on Beau's website. She has found out about 2 more missing dogs. She hasn't had a chance to either work on Beau's website or my blog the last week.
Love from Hammer
