LOST TEACUP POODLE

Our teacup poodle is missing. She weighs 4lbs is apricot in color. Her name is precious. I suspect she is in heat. She was my mothers dog and when mom became ill and went back to the states we kept her here. She has been crying constantly to go out and today when I came home at 3:30pm she shot out the door and I have been looking for her ever since. We live in Cotton Valley on Yellow Cliff Trail. She looks scruffy with long hair because she hasn't been groomed in 6 months. No collar or identification and no picture. Please if anyone sees her call me 690-8274.

Thank you

Tam

Precious is still missing. I posted the wrong phone number before. The correct one is 690-8277. Thank you.

Tami.... please make sure and call the shelter right away and let them know she is missing. Many people call the shelter first when they find a pet. They have a lost and found log and can also be aware of her if she gets brought to the shelter. I also suggest that you make a poster and take it to the vets office. Since she is not used to being outside she will not likely know how to find her way home but if she is friendly she will likely be found by someone. Not a lot of people really read this forum so the best thing is to put out posters, alert the shelter and alert the vets. Best of luck to you.

Good Point limetime. Last time I found some strays I made posters and put them up at the vet's offices and Stapled them up all over the telephone poles downtown. Schooner market is another good location. I will keep a look out for your princess and hope you find her very very soon.

Thank you everyone. Great suggestions. I guess I was too upset to think about any of that. She is very friendly and will go to anyone. I am hoping that someone picked her up because even though she looks so scruffy right now she is very cute.

Good News!!!!!!!!!!!!! We found her. Bad news is neighbors had her and know where she lives. That is all I will say about that. She always barks when she hears my truck and I heard her barking and saw her on their porch so I went and got her. She is uninjured but covered with fleas. We dipped her and will be taking her tomorrow to be spayed as Daughter is sure that she has been mated.

Thanks everyone for your help and suggestions.

Again, thank you all. It was so hard to go to sleep last night knowing she was out and JJ crying his eyes out. I am very sad to know that someone had her and could hear us calling for her but then again I am grateful that someone did have her and she was not hurt. A mixed blessing. You guys are so wonderful. This message board is a great little family to have.

Really glad you found her and equally glad you are going to have her spayed. Pet Overpopulation is rampant on the island and there are so many adorable pets at the shelter that need homes.... no need to add more .

If anyone is looking for a small pet... I met a real cutie... very well behaved... small breed ... young female puppy yesterday. Her name is Rainy and she is at the St. Croix Animal Welfare Center. She surely will find a home really fast but I was so impressed with her calm, loving demeanor and her soft black and tan curly coat. A very sweet loving little girl!

You know, I am so disappointed the Obamas did not adopt a shelter dog. Of course, as my husband says, everything they do in their personal lives doesn't have to be "politically correct", but I think it would have set a good example and might have made adopting a bit more in vogue. I really didn't follow the whole dog story, so maybe there was a good reason. They are certainly entitled to have whatever dog they prefer. Just a thought.

Of course Juanita then everyone would have run to the shelters, adopted a pet then decide they made a mistake.

I think the Obamas giving a generous donation to a shelter was nice on their part.

Yes a shelter dog would have been nice. And a Cruzan dog would have been even greater.

The White House is big enough for more then one dog. with all those rooms ,they could have a whole pack and plenty of white house aides for dog walking duty.

And what about a white house kitty. Lets have our shelter donate a nice cruzan kitty. and throw in a few cruzan chickens for the white house lawn.

See, I didn't know about the Obamas making a donation to the shelter.(tu) Like I said, I hadn't really followed the story. I like the chickens at the White House idea too! I'll donate a rooster or two.

glad to see the dog is home...you must have been frantic. Sorry about your neighbors--I don't really know where your house is, so I don't know who they might be, but a shame.

It's my fault Beachy, she kept going to their house to be with their male dog because she was in heat. If it had been me I would have brought the dog back after hearing JJ and I calling for her but I guess we just think different. In anycase I will be more careful in the future. She has been spayed. Poor little thing doesn't want to go out. Just laying around.

Obama originally said that his preference was to adopt a shelter dog - "a mutt like me" was how he put it. But Malia has allergies and that limited the choices.
