“@PoPville Finnegan has been found! We were circling solid leads in Petworth and got a text that he was spotted back in Brookland. #findfinn”

“His name is Finnegan, and he just ran away at ~5:30PM Eastern time. He was last seen at 9th and Monroe St NE, in Washington, DC. He was running the Metro Branch Trail.

He’s a mix of rat terrier and cattle dog. Photos of him are attached. Any sightings or information will be extremely helpful.

About Finnegan:

* He’s likelier to come if you crouch down and beckon or whistle. Don’t run at him, and try to crouch and stay low if you get near him.
* He responds to “Finnegan”, “Finn”, and whistles.
* He is microchipped.
* He likes peanut butter, jerky, and other normal dog things.”

“Dear PoPville,

A couple of nights ago I was at the pharmacy in my neighborhood buying milk because of the snowcalypse that was coming :). Grabbed the milk and noticed 2 young men in the aisle, One of them put a couple of bottles in his overall, I thought he wanted to have his hands free to carry more stuff to the counter. I went around the aisle and when I was on the other side I saw the guy with the bottles leaving the store, no alarm sound or anything. The store guard usually stands between the milk/juice aisle and the entrance but he/she wasn’t there, and then I saw the guard walking and talking to the other young man in the back of the store as if they were looking for something. I assume, this guy was distracting the guard while the other one was leaving.

Due to some life experiences, I didn’t mention this to anybody. I don’t know the guys, but there’s no reason for me to put my life in potential risk just to save the cost of a couple of bottles to a pharmacy chain. I wonder what PoPville thinks about it?”
