Found Dog on Newtown/Brookfield line
We found a lost dog tonight around 6:30pm walking in the middle of  route 25 near Fawn Ridge Drive in Brookfield.  I am posting this in both the Newtown Patch and Brookfield Patch since we found it close to the border.  The dog has no collar, tags or ID but I am attaching her picture. If you know this dog's owners please call us at 203-364-0346.

this looks a lot like our Abbey who went missing a year ago. We never found her. And have never been able to shake the feeling that she is out there somewhere

Shouldn't you check to see if it could be Abbey, Jen?

Did anyone check to see if the dog was microchipped? Jen, have you called the number yet???

Thank you so much for taking this dog in. You could have saved its life in this bitter cold.

We took it to the Newtown veterinary specialists last night and she does not have a microchip. The dog does have cataracts though and does not appear to be able to see very well.

Claudia, Since it was bitter cold, dark and the dog was walking slowly down the middle of route 25 we felt we had to see if we could help, especially since it nearly missed getting hit by the car in front of us. We are hoping that it just got out of its owners house and got disoriented as the vet tech thought it was up to 10 years old. We don't think it can see or hear very well. The dog weighs about 19-20 pounds.

Thank you Joe Kearney for caring enough to stop and to take the dog home especially a senior dog that doesn't hear or see well. There is a special place in heaven for people like you. Is this dog a male or female? And you can share on Granite State Dog Recovery they have a wide following! Also check craigslist for someone posting a missing dog. Let's all pray this poor baby wasn't dumped!
