2 Lost Dogs

2 Precious dogs are missing in Blowing Rock. They went missing this weekend, July 4th, both dogs escaped from the fenced area at the house sometime yesterday morning/afternoon (July 4th, 2010).  Deacon is an 8 yr. old, 80 lb. black dog with brown markings and a white blaze on his chest.  Molly is ~13 yr. old, 60 lb. black dog with a white face and brindle markings.  Both have aztec-colored collars.  Deacon has all his tags, including the yellow one for his ID chip.  At least one of Molly's tags has fallen off, so she may not have any tags, but she does have an ID chip.  They were both last seen in the Pack Hill Rd area off Old John's River Rd in Blowing Rock.  Reward will be gladly offered if found.

Puppy 2

Very tall, older male dark tan dog with white on his muzzle, named Rufus.

Missing since June 30 from the 105 by pass, Laurel Fork Road area.

Animal Care and Control picked him up because his master is indisposed.  I agreed to foster him until his owner could take him back.  He escaped from my kennel and is out there looking for his person.

Rufus is an older dog and seemed to be confused and depressed but very gentle and easy to handle.  He’s probably hungry by now so he might be lured by food.

If you spot him please call Animal Care and Control at 828-262-1672.  If you can’t reach them call Joanne at 828-297-1344.

LOST DOG(Updated 7/7 2010






UPDATED 7/6/2010:

*** Still no sightings of precious little MIA!

Please continue to look and pray for this little girl!



*** Mia was spotted this morning(6/28/2010) around 8:00 am on Elk Creek Road, the feeder route to PHM from Old Hwy 421 but she ran back into the woods before anyone could get to her. A search was conducted but no Mia. Please continue to help search for little Mia!



***Mia's collar and lead were found on a roadside on Powder Horn Mountain where she had slipped out of it. No sign of Mia! PLEASE if anyone sees her or has seen her call her family. Mia came from an abusive home and her new family was trying to socialize her and give her a little time to destress before having her spayed and chipped.So she does not have any ID at all. If you have seen this little girl, please call her family!!!


“Mia” is a small red, long haired dachshund, with white hair on her belly and a white and red spotted chest. She has one blue eye and one brown one. Last seen in the woods beyond the Powder Horn Mountain club house in Deep Gap. Please contact owner, Mark Burin, if you should spot her or be able to get her under your control. She might bark and growl due to fright, but has never been known to bite. Unless she is frightened, she is sweet tempered and loves human attention.
