Black shepherd dog seen running loose around Aurora Avenue this morning

September 29th, 2014 by Doree

Tina tells us she saw a dog running loose around 9 a.m. today (Monday).

I saw a black Shepard dog (with some white spots), medium size, running south on Linden and approx 70th, crossed the street (thankfully cars stopped) and all the way along Aurora, under the bridge and running fast to green lake. Trying to stop him and help getting him, but he looked frightened and run away from me very fast.

And Laura wrote to us on Saturday about what sounds like a similar dog.

925 AM today (Saturday) a dog came running East from 85th and turned south on 99 running in the middle of the street as cars swerved to miss it. It was very fast.

Description: mostly black with white accents, German shepherd build, but taller, pointed ears.

He was running and he will eventually get tired and sit on your porch and look really cute. He is about 20 pounds, has floppy ears and may or may not answer to the name Omak. He is a little scared and is a LONG way from his actual home. If you see him let us know, we will come to where he was spotted.

If you’ve seen Omak, email Eric and Stacey at bassgil@earthlink.net.

 He very sweetly came to me, and shared a leash with my dog. We walked to the Greenlake Animal Hospital, and he was NOT chipped. Nor was he wearing a collar! But this is clearly someone’s pet. He’s a little chubby (not starving), rides well in the car, and walks nicely on a leash. I brought him to the Seattle Animal Shelter on Elliot Ave, in case someone goes looking for him there. Thus far, he has not been claimed. He was found at the north end of Greenlake.

Beagle with no collar seen running through Greenwood this afternoon

February 26th, 2014 by Doree

Rebecca tells us she saw a beagle with no collar running around Greenwood around 2 p.m. today.

I followed him up Fremont from 80th (he crossed against traffic and was miraculously fine) to 84th and back down Linden toward 80th again. He wouldn’t let me get close enough to grab him, unfortunately, and I lost sight of him as he ran back south toward 80th. He (or possibly she?) seemed on the older side.
