Need Assistance to Find a Missing Dog

Need Assistance to Find a Missing Dog

Hagerstown, MD- On August 20, 2007 a dog bolted from an out of state vehicle that had pulled over on Interstate 81 to investigate potential vehicle trouble. The dog began running in a panic north bound on Interstate 81. That dog is still missing and the Humane Society of Washington County is asking the public for assistance in locating and capturing him so he can be returned to his owners.
The dog is a male black and white Border collie weighting between 45-50 pounds. He is wearing a black leather collar and his name is Jag. He is shy and weary of strangers but he is friendly once reassured. Owners and their relatives have been attempting to locate and capture the dog and are staying at a local hotel. They are worried that he may broaden his area by searching for them.
The dog has apparently found a friend to run with as he was believed to have been spotted with another black and white dog that was previously reported as a stray. The pair has been sighted between exits 6 and 7 on I-81 and between I-81 and National Pike.
Mr. Paul Miller, executive director of the Humane Society of Washington County, believes the dogs are traveling between collection ponds. "It is imperative that we find these dogs quickly," stated Miller. He added, "If they increase their range it will become more difficult to find them."
The Humane Society of Washington County is asking that all sightings be reported immediately to Animal Control at 301-790-7577 x203.
