Local Resident Seeks Help in Finding Missing Dog

The dog, Paris, went missing from Libertyville this week.

Editor's Note: This local resident asked if we would share this information about her lost dog. We are always happy to help! Please be on the lookout for her dog, Paris!


From Tracy Crane:

Paris is an 8-year-old sheltie female who went missing on Tuesday 12/18 from Libertyville. She is a bit skittish around strangers, so we're asking that people do not chase her. It's ok to call for her, but only if using a calm, sweet, almost child-like voice, otherwise she'll get spooked and run away. She has tags with her name and my cell number, and is microchipped as well.

Please check under porches, in sheds or bushes, or other places where a dog could hide to stay warm. All the area police departments have been called, as well as animal control, so people can call 911 or my cell (847) 508-5590.

Hi Teresa, That's why we are working to get shelters to list found pets. We provide our services for free to shelters and can integrate with their current systems so it's not any extra work. It's not acceptable that someone should have to visit a shelter every few days for years.

Hello - I'm very happy to report that, after 11 days, Paris has been found and is now home with her family! She made it all the way to Wheeling where she was spotted by residents who contacted the police who were able to pick her up and take her to the Wheeling Animal Hospital. The animal hospital scanned her chip and contacted me right away. We are so thankful for everyone's help and support during the time Paris was missing! -Tracy Crane
