Lost Dog in North Country

From a reader:

“I am writing to ask if you would mind mentioning on your blog that a dog in foster care on behalf of the Washington Animal Rescue League is missing. Berdina is a brindle/gray/white pit bull mix who is VERY friendly and was last seen in the area of Longfellow and Blair Streets, NW on April 21. The league’s staff and volunteers have been looking for her and posting fliers, but with no luck so far. She weighs about 50 pounds and was last seen wearing a red, white, and blue “Obama” collar with a red rabies tag. We’re really worried about her. Anything you could do to help us get the word out would be very much appreciated. I have attached a picture of Berdina. She’s a sweet girl! Anyone with information can call Mary at WARL (202-375-7755).”

  • she’s so darn cute! I hope Berdina (fab name!) is OK.

  • If we see her we will let you kow! Here is a tip:Make sure if you go to adopt a puppy that you bring a crate. Dogs can act unpredictably I was transporting a 6 month old lab- border collie mix puppy that I had adopted and the dog got off of it’s leash in the back seat-Got into the passenger side and then attacked me numerous times while I was driving. What a mess. I was able to control the car. The bites were on the arms-luckily not on my face. This was a nice dog that had been living with children. Apparently when we passed by some cows it got scared aggressive. Lesson- Dogs can act in an unpredictable manner and when transporting a dog -even if you know the animal, keep it in a crate.

  • Louise – ditto. I adopted a dog and when driving home she panicked and vomited on the dashboard air vent grill.
