<<<<- Dog Lost In Pescadero - A very friendly dog called Maya was lost in San Pedrito beach in Pescadero. It happened during fireworks on the beach on July 27th in the late evening. Unfortunately, she didn't have her collar with a tag on, only a white anti-flea collar. She looks like a pit bull-ridgeback mix, light brown color with a white spot on her chest and has a black muzzle. She is one of two dogs (sisters) who have never been separated before. We all miss her a lot. If you seen her or adopted her by mistake, please contact us as soon as possible. - Lee And Lesia lpc_loki [ - a t - ] yahoo.co.uk, 612-157-2533, Pescadero

Puppy Needs a Home ->>>> - Small black puppy (female) with white underside between front paws needs a home. She has been hanging around my place for over a week and was getting very skinny 'til I started feeding her. She is very timid but looks in good health. I can not keep her and need to find her a home. Please help. - Dan Binetti, danbinetti [ - a t - ] yahoo.com, 044-612-11-70298

<<<<- Have You Lost This Dog? - A beautiful Pointer has appeared on our street corner in the last week and is clearly lost. (Please see photo.) He is mature, wearing a pale blue "Coastal" collar with no ID on it. He may be purebred Pointer, or a Boxer cross. He's being fed and watered where he is but he's distressed and frightened on the street, and is clearly a lost or stolen/abandoned pet. He's currently hanging out - not going too far from the water supply - on the corner of Calle Insurgentes and Agua Dulce, in La Posada colonia in La Paz (behind the VW agency, towards the water). He's very friendly, doesn't look like he's been on the street long, and is in great condition. It would be fab to find his owners - I imagine someone is missing him very much. - Penny Cottee, pennycottee [ - a t - ] ymail.com, La Paz
