Lost Dog in Petworth if Seen Please Return to 811 Webster St, NW

“As I was walking home an elderly lady called to me from her front porch and asked if I had seen her dog. She described her dog to me, when I tried to show her one of the photos she said she couldn’t see very well. Her dog is the one in the pictures. His name is Fox. He isn’t wearing a collar or tags. He seems friendly enough but totally unaware of traffic, and considering he lives in between Kansas and Georgia Ave, this is not a good thing.

She is at 811 Webster St NW.”

    I found this dog about a year and a half ago running around two blocks away

  • I find the headline a little confusing. Is the dog lost, or found?

    • Anonymous

      Yes, very confusing. So the OP happened to see Fox and take pictures of him before the interaction with the elderly lady? How was the elderly lady able to verify it was him if she couldn’t see the pictures? A few more sentences would have been nice to connect the pieces of the story together.

    Posting the woman’s address worries me. Might be safer to have anyone who found the dog contact a third party to get info about where it belongs, since the owner sounds fragile and vulnerable.

    • Blithe

      I agree — especially since the owner of the dog is likely not the person who made the request that this information be posted. The post states that the lady is elderly and has poor vision. An open invitation to have anyone that reads this knock on her door saying “Hey, lady, I have your dog” seems misguided.

    I saw the dog running around today and shared on FB and later referred to this post. Unfortunately the dog ran away both from myself and another woman when we both tried to reign in.. It would not let anyone close. I hope the dog made its way home. Please post any updates.

  • Webster

    Yes, I would definitely remove the address! And also, Fox is not particularly nice.

    I saw this dog this morning around 7:30 at 9th and Jefferson NW. It ran away from me and headed east on Jefferson until 7th Street. I wasn’t able to get close to it as I was walking my own dog.

    Any news? The dogs looks so sweet…

  • Webster

    Fox has been returned to his owner. BTW, he is not what I would call ‘sweet’.
