Have You Seen This Dog?

Marco, a 12-pound poodle-Jack Russell terrier mix, has gone missing, and his heartbroken owner has asked the Gazette for help in finding him.

On August 1, Gerson Lopez of Harrison told the Gazette, he was involved in a motor vehicle accident on Halstead Avenue in Mamaroneck.  In the confusing aftermath, frightened family pet Marco slipped away and is still missing.  Despite checking with local veternarians, shelters and pet groomers, the Lopez family has had no success in finding the dog. “My four-year-old daughter cries all the time, missing Marco, ” Mr. Lopez told the Gazette.

    Anyone that would take a precious dog like this away from its loving family – and the young child who is obviously heart broken – is a cold and callous individual or group of individuals. This dog is most likely in someone’s home today – and w/ enough vigilance, he can be found. The little girl should not have to find out so early on how cruel the world can be….please help to find this gorgeous dog as if he were your own missing best friend!!!

    If you find a dog, it is a civil duty and moral obligation to try and locate its owner. The best way to do this is to contact the local shelters who are also being contacted by the rightful owners. Many people think they need to go door to door trying to find an owner and when they can’t, they feel they can keep the pet for themselves. That is not the right way to do it. Shelters are set up to handle these situations and they have databases and communication channels set up w/ other shelters so they can cross reference a lost or found pet.

    I hope and pray that Marco is reunited w/ his real owners – who obviously care very deeply about their missing family member….

    I am considering putting a chip in my dog, Blossy. I would become permanently brain damaged if he disappeared

    I know how you feel Joanne. Chips have worked in reuniting pets and their owners usually because Vets will often scan a new pet that is “found” by a new owner. However, there are two caveats to this:

    1) Because of micro chipping many thieves will fail to bring a pet in for it’s required health care check ups and vaccinations. For fear of being “caught”

    2) The jury is still out as to whether or not chips cause physical damage to a pet – i.e. cancer? autoimmune illnesses like Cushings etc. etc.

    It’s an unfortunate situation all around. Bottom line is, NEVER EVER leave your pet unattended – just like you wouldn’t do to a child. The cuter the pet – as in the case of this one named Marco, the more at risk they are for being stolen. I once had my dog in the car, ran inside to the post office, for a brief “second” only to come outside to see a group of strangers in a car pulled up next to mine w/ their hands reaching inside to just “pet” my cute dog. I screamed “Please do not do that as she bites and you do not have my permission to pet her either.” They laughed and walked away….needless to say, I believe they were in the process of stealing her. With pets in shelters looking to be adopted, why do people feel the need to steal a pet that is already owned and loved by its family? I will never understand this….except that most likely they are no good scoundrels who planned to sell that pet and make a cheap buck. Despicable is all I can say…I had hoped to hear there was a happy ending to this tale, but no news is usually not good news….I would surmise…
