Did I kidnap your child? If so, please send me an email describing her markings. She was spotted Wednesday evening dodging cars near Roswell Road. In addition to teaching her not to play in the street, you really should have taught her not to take dog food from strangers, which is how I lured into my white unmarked Honda.
She's a small dog and can't weigh more than 17 pounds, she also has a tendency to run around in circles like a mad-woman. Other activities include torturing my 13-year-old cat and knocking over trashcans.
I would describe her as short-haired, curly-tailed with bat ears. I was told by several sources that she is a young full-blooded Basenji. She also appears to be unspayed. (I won't get into how i feel about that).
I took her to a veterinarian, who said she did not have a microchip.
Based on her energy levels and how fast she can run, i would not be surprised if she had traveled some distance.
If you think this is your child please send an email and I will respond promptly. If this is your dog, I will need photographic evidence, detailed information on her markings and other information only the owner can provide. She's not going home with just anyone. If you just dropped her off in our neighborhood like an uncaring a$$hole, please be assured that she is happy, healthy and much better off without you.
If i do not hear back from the owner in a week, I'm adopting her out to a very nice man who has owned several Basenji's before. He has a nice big back yard and treats his dogs better than most people treat their children.
