Have You Seen Dubi?
I just received the following (and very disquieting) email from my friends over at District Dog regarding the above depicted pet. Please give it a read as the circumstances under which this dog disappeared are more than a little dubious. Rob writes:
I am sure you have seen the signs for the MISSING BLACK AND TAN CHOW/ SHEPARD MIX in the neighborhood.Â It was last seen with a girl about 5’10” and blonde hair, she was wearing a brown coat.Â The dogs name is Dubi,Â he is a well taken care of dog, we can attest to this.
If anyone has any information, please contact us immediately.
We just returned from our trip and are heartbroken to hear that he is missing.
We have been told that the girl that took him from Christina’s Corner Store believed the owner abandoned him.Â This is not the case.Â The dog was in the park with the owner running around with his leash hanging and took off.Â Someone must have tied him up at the corner store.Â We can understand the initial interpretation, but circumstances cannot be assumed.
Hiram, Dubi’s owner has been to the police and shelters with no luck yet. He received a message from the person who took the dog, saying she was not going to give the dog back. This is illegal.Â She has not even spoken directly to him yet and did not leave a number to call back.Â We have been told that she lives withing a few blocks of the store.
PLEASE PASS THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW IN THE AREA.
WE CAN BE REACHED 24/7 AT 718.290.7434
OR BY EMAIL rob (at) districtdog (dot) com
PLEASE HELP US GET DUBI HOME.
TELL EVERYONE YOU SEE IN THE DOG RUN OR WALKING A DOG.
If you have seen Dubi please contact Rob via email or the above telephone number immediately. Let’s get this handsome chap back to his rightful owner. Thanks!
UPDATE, 1/14/09: I spoke to Rob Maher this afternoon. Apparently the woman who left the voice message stating she was not returning this gentleman’s dog also berated him for not offering a reward. Naturally if I get my hands on this delightful missive you can look forward to hearing it on New York Shitty. In the meantime I will have to be satisfied with adding the coveted “asshole” tag to this post.
