A local Iowa family is heartbroken today. They went on a cross country driving vacation. During the trip, they stopped at their sister's house in Ashland, Kentucky. Lizzy stayed there where she would be cared for by family members rather than strangers.
Sadly, on Monday July 18th, Lizzy's collar, complete with identification tags, broke off while visiting and she wandered off at a location with which she is unfamiliar. She was seen briefly the next day but would not come when called.
Lizzy is a petite 40 lb, 2 year old, German Shorthaired Pointer. She is a spayed female, and is liver and white, more commonly known as brown and white. Her head and butt are distinctly marked in solid brown.
She is microchipped with a Home Again microchip, and Home Again has been notified of her missing status, but in my experience, Home Again microchips do not always show up on some microchip scanners. If a shelter is using a non-home again or non-universal microchip scanner, she may appear to not have a microchip. (future blog coming on this topic)
If you are in Kentucky please spread the word about Lizzy. Her family is heartbroken and worried about her.
