Lots of folks have been inquiring so please continue to keep your eyes peeled:

Geoffrey, our 11mo old black & tan Welsh Terrier (mini Airedale) is STILL missing, since Wednesday, 5/11. He was last seen in NE DC, around the National Arboretum/Mt. Olivet/Bladensburg Road/Trinidad area. He is ~20 lbs and was wearing a red collar when he went missing. Geoffrey is really friendly, loves other dogs and we hope someone in NE will spot him, snap a picture, and let us know — at 757.968.0444 or 802.370.0851 and on Facebook @Bring Geoffrey Home so we can bring him home! Large reward, no questions asked.”

    I’m sure the owners are just sick to their stomachs. We feel your pain and pray for a soon and safe return for the beloved and beautiful Geoffrey.

    People need to stop this new trend of offering “large rewards” with no questions asked. It’s going to create a market for dog theft if there isn’t one already.

    That being said I really hope they get him back. As Lisa said they are likely sick to their stomachs.

    Poor pup might be scared and hiding in the arboretum. I live in the area and will keep my eyes open. I really hope he is found soon. This story really pulls on my heart strings.

      I’ve been taking my pups to the arboretum on the weekends– I’ll bring some treats with me on the off change we spot him!

    So is Geoffrey still being spotted running around DC? He is certainly resilient. I hope he comes home soon! Terriers are a handful, but probably my favorite dogs

      It sounds like someone did spot him in the Trinidad area yesterday.

      • Jill

        It’s always amazed me that a dog can be lost for weeks in a place as densely populated as DC. That’s good news that he’s been spotted recently though! I love (and own) terriers too.

  • Nathan

    I keep checking the FB page hoping to see that he’s found. This is really sad….little guy looks just like my pup too and is only a few months younger:(

  • Girl on a Hill

    I grew up with a Welsh and my parents recently put down our beloved Airedale. They are amazing dogs, very bright and not lacking for personality! I’m sad Geoffrey is still missing, I will keep my eyes open.

    I’m part of a running group that takes dogs from the Washington Humane Society to the Arboretum for exercise and socialization on the weekends. I passed this post along to the leaders, so there should be some dog-loving eyes looking out for Geoffrey in that area tomorrow.

    I know him from the dog park (my pup is Arlo) and am really hoping that he gets home soon.

    Taking my Westie up to the Arboretum now for a walk. I hope he is found soon!! I can’t stop thinking about him and what the owners are going through!
