    They're having a search party tomorrow if people want to volunteer and help. Here's the info from their facebook page...

    Search for Joy - Volunteers Needed!
    By Joy Lost in Ballard

    Thursday, January 31
    6:00am until 8:00am
    1918 NW 65th Street, Seattle

    The last few sightings of Joy have been in the early morning hours, so we're coordinating an organized search in Ballard during that timeframe.

    Tracy Wilson (Joy's owner) and Jim Branson (from 3 Retrievers Lost Pet Rescue) will meet all willing volunteers in the parking lot of Smokin' Pete's BBQ on Thursday, Jan. 31 at 6 a.m. and we'll fan out from there.

    If you have a calm, friendly dog, feel free to bring him/her along for the search. Joy is more trusting of friendly dogs than people -- however barkers will scare her away.

    Please attend if you can. Even if you can only spare a few minutes before work, it would be such a big help!

    Friday morning...
    "Just got a call that a man found Joy sleeping on his front porch this morning. On 90th just west of Soundview field. (He just saw a flyer posted on Market St. and connected the dots.) He gave her water and offered food, but she ran off. He reports that she seemed pretty calm, a bit scared, but otherwise OK. He will put more food out tonight. PLEASE, if you live in the area, put some food on your porch! She's asking for help...let's give it to her!!!"

    Friday afternoon she was spotted running south on 21st NW then west on 92nd.

    Keep looking! Apparently there is another lost dog running around in Ballard who looks very similar to Joy...no wonder there have been so many multiple sightings in opposite parts of town!

    From Joy's fb page:

    A similar, smaller dog escaped this afternoon. She has a red collar, and she seems to be the source of some of the calls we are getting about Joy running along Market Street. Please keep an eye out for Ginger while you are looking for Joy. If you see any dog, at any time, running in a manner that suggests she is frightened and lost, you can always call Three Retrievers Lost Pet Rescue, 206-552-0304, and we will help if we can. Below is the CL ad for Ginger:

    Awesome news that Joy has been found!!!! Another VERY HAPPY ending!! :-)

    Thanks to all those who helped in the search, along with Joy's facebook page and a chip, the Seattle Animal Shelter officer who found her near Green Lake was able to confirm it was her. She is uninjured but very scared and on her way home! See her "found" photo here...
