This dog is 35-40 pounds and smaller than a regular Akita. She has been in a foster situation and got loose. She has been severely abused by her prior owners and was just getting acclimated to people again. She will be very afraid and skiddish. She should be in the Blue Mountain area but could have made it up to Highway 98 and likes to stay near wooded area. She will be hungry and wearing an orange harness.
PLEASE STAY ON THE LOOKOUT!
CK with Laurie, at the Alaqua Animal Refuge. I believe that they rescue animals from kill shelters, but, the more people that you have looking, the better! Do you have a pic, that you could put out? Poor baby, she needs peace, love and a safe home! Alot of sites like petfinder.com, will let you post a pic and information. Good luck!
My wife and I went out riding late this afternoon looking around the area that was mentioned, We also passed the info onto a few of our friends that walk the trails. If they have any pictures of the missing loved one we will be glad to fwd them on our email list locally as well! Prayers for a quick and safe return coming from our house. Please give us updates.
Diane4145, I think WalCo sends their captured animals to Chipley, FL or somewhere like that. Not sure if your search includes the Chipley shelter. Fortunately for many dogs and owners, the Animal Patrol doesn't police every neighborhood round the clock.
I hope you find the Akita. Maybe she will find a new, permanent family.
