Missing Friend - Our friend went missing Thursday night (Sept. 8) We miss him and so does his buddy. He was last seen around the Sandbar. He is brown, short hair and has two scars (a large scar on his left flank and a thin white scar around his neck which was caused by a string he was tied up with when we rescued him). He has (had) a red collar. Instead of him moping around, feeling sad and lonely, why not bring him back and let him come home? He is not a stray and we would like him back home sleeping in his favorite spot. If anyone has seen him, please get in touch. email jimiykaren [- a t -] yahoo.com, phone 130-3022 - jimiykaren [- a t -] yahoo.com, Pescadero
Dog Lost? Check with Baja Dogs - If you have lost a dog, please check with Baja Dogs La Paz at 612-155-8948 or email lostdog [- a t -] bajadogs.org. We quite often have dogs at the refuge that we hope owners will claim.
