SAFE! Pearl got away from her new home!!!

GREAT NEWS UPDATE - SHE IS HOME!

I just saw this on facebook. This is terrible. She got into rescue as a stray and now she on the loose in Chicago. Here's what the facebook post says

URGENT: Pearl, a recently adopted female basenji (below) got away from her new owners in Chicago at 8 pm today (Tuesday). Last know location is 103rd and Seeley. She may come to "Pearl" or "Cleo" and has tags with the name Cleopatra. Pleas Cross-Post.

Thanks for posting. People are out looking for her now. Some possible sightings. Cross your fingers they find her safe and sound!

I shared on FB too but I had to copy and paste the status in order to share it with her photo.

Yeah, I know, i wish it copied the text too. Need to find a better way to do that, perhaps with a lost pet banner or something.

Any more news on Pearl? (fingers crossed)

Last I heard, the previous foster mom is driving down to Chicago with one of her basenjis (a boy Pearl really liked) to canvas the area and hopefully create a scent trail to help her to find her way back.

Please keep us posted.

Praying that she is found safe and sound..poor Pearl, so lost and probably scared out of her mind.

No news yet. The owners put out a findtoto search so they're hoping to here something from that.

I suggest people look into the site for future reference (but hope you never need to use it), it's a cool approach to get the word out quickly about your lost pet.

This is my worst nightmare. I will send good prayers to all and this little b most of all.

I know. I wish I lived a little closer so I could help. It was 97 F today so I hope she was able to find some shade and water. Pearl was (possibly) a stray before so I'm hoping she is street savvy.

Worse nightmare. I tell adopters to double collar if they MUST walk (ie not a fenced yard) until the dog has a couple of weeks to bond and learn their location; crate if the door has to be opened, etc. Sending prayers. 😞

sending out prayers for a safe return - I can't imagine the anguish of losing a dog!

I hate hearing these kinds of stories, and especially about new adoptees… Heartbreaking to imagine the emotional swing from joy to anguish. I hope they are able to get her back soon!

Just heard Pearl has been sighted very recently. There is still hope!

Pearl is home! Nicole just called me with the good news! She looks good…just needs a bath. Thanks to everyone who helped search for her. And Special thanks to Karin TarQwyn, the "K9 P.I." who gave invaluable (and free, I believe) advice on how to develop the approach which successfully helped to find her.
