  • Found this post from July 5th. Sounds like it could be the same pup.

    “I live at 15th and Newton in Brookland. On Friday night I met a woman named Krysta at the corner of 14th and Newton St, NE, looking for her dog MIKEY, who escaped from his collar, got hit by a car and took off running at about 10:30pm. Krysta and Mikey are visiting Brookland from out of town, and he doesn’t know the neighborhood.

    Mikey is a tall, brindle Pit mix and very friendly/gentle. Krysta called in an alert to the DC shelter. Mikey is also chipped.

    If someone finds Mikey, Krysta asks that they call her on 717-698-0689”

    • I wouldn’t say the dog pictured is brindle or tall.

    • I was thinking the same thing but Mikey is a boy and this pup from the post seems to be girl

      • Actually, this is a poorly worded post. The writer doesn’t indicate whether it is a male or female dog. I have no idea who “Cybelle” is- the writer, the person who took in the dog, or the vet? Who knows?

        • I get the impression that the OP isn’t all that knowledgeable when it comes to dogs but wanted to help, just in case this one was a match.

  • +1 The Mikey posters are still up in Michigan Park and around Brookland as of this morning. This looks a lot like the dog in that picture!

  • Just called Mikey’s owner and this is a different dog. The dog in this picture is also male.

  • thank you for posting! i notified mikey’s owner about this when it was posted to the mt. pleasant listserv on sat night. unfortunately it’s not him. i sure hope this handsome guy finds his home soon. please help spread the word to shelters, vets, fb groups, etc. thank you!

  • Aw when I saw that pup I had hoped it was Mikey!!! I keep looking for him when walking home from the metro…hope his mom and dad find him soon….

  • I saw a missing dog poster up on Georgia Ave. yesterday, near Howard for a dog that looks like this one (brown pit bull with red nose). I don’t remember the name of the dog on the poster, but this seems like it could be a match.

  • looks like a dog that is on 11th street NW between otis and monroe. don’t know the name, but when it’s outside, it’s barking at my dogs when they walk by
