Please let everyone know how grateful we are to everyone who took our flyers and who called with sightings....after a week on the lam, JP is home and in his girl's arms where he belongs.  He's really skinny but seems to be in good shape - we'll get the vet to check him over in the morning.  
Thank you especially to the woman who recognized him at her back door and called immediately when he started to walk off down her driveway tonight (Friday).  She refused to take any reward; but as far as I'm concerned, she added stars to her crown in heaven tonight.  So many people took our search seriously and helped, it just makes me all the happier we live in such a wonderful community.  THANK YOU ALL.
Very sincerely yours,
Marjory Holder





JP was seen on Tuesday 10/6 around CCCTI, on Larel Fork and White Oak, just west of the By-Pass! 
It's our first word in days....please update the page and help us bring Nyssa's baby home.
J.P. is my grand-dog.  He is a whippet (like a small greyhound) - white with large brown or brindle patches.  He got out on Friday night 10/2/09 off Poplar Grove Road near Yonalahsee stables.  He was seen headed north on Poplar Grove on Saturday morning 10/3, then across 105 at the Blimpies, and later headed north on George Wilson Road (around 9 pm).  Someone north of West King, on Old Bristol Road, may have heard his dog tags jingling in the wee hours of Sunday morning.
JP may be shy or scared on approach, but is very sweet and cuddly and gets along well with other dogs. He can burst out with speed and enthusiasm, but is not at all dangerous.  He cannot tolerate cold. He does NOT like to get into or ride in cars, so the best bet is to inform Nyssa by text or phone of his location and get him on a leash or lead if possible to keep him in one place.
The address on JP’s tag is on Flannery Fork Road, which is Nyssa’s parents’ address.
He appears to be generally heading north.

We need to know where he was seen, what time, and what direction he's headed in now.
UPDATE...10/05/2009 @ 5:30PM
This is Nyssa; JP's mom.  The last time he was seen was around 9:00 Saturday on the 105 bypass and George Wilson Road heading North.  A few people have tried to chase after him and grab him.  One man had his collar, JP freaked and the guy thought he was going to bite him so let go.  He is NOT vicious and will not bite; he's just lost and scared at this point.  Also, if you chase him, he will run away from you.  No one has seen him since.  We're not entirely sure where he is now, but we're still looking.
