I AM VERY HAPPY TO REPORT THAT JP IS HOME WITH HIS FAMILY RIGHT WHERE HE BELONGS!!!
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,
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.
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’
He appears to be generally heading

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.
