Found - Female Dog - 2/2/2014 Terry's Plain Road

Giving a kiss
This scared medium-sized female dog was picked up this weekend on Terrys Plain Rd.  No collar, no microchip. She is being held the required 7 days and if not claimed she will be up for adoption.  This dog is very skittish and unsure of people's intentions, but will warm up after some time and treats.  Would do best in an adult home due to her skittish behavior.  No idea how long she has been out running.  If you know who owns her or if you are interested in adopting her, contact Animal Control Officer Mark Rudewicz at 860 658-3110.

That dog is in such good condition, not thin or anything, I'm betting it's a recent lost pet of someone's.

She is in good shape. No collar, no microchip, and no one has reported her as lost. She may have been dumped on Terry's Plain Road. You would be surprised how many dogs are dumped off in Simsbury. Pass her photo around and hopefully an owner will come forward or an adopter. She is very scared right now and does not present well.

Thank you for picking her up. I'd hate to think of her out in a storm like this with no shelter.

Shelley - I did not pick her up. A woman driving by saw her and was able to get her into her car. Thank goodness for the person who got her - she saved her from this storm! I offered to take photos of her at the kennel and was able to meet her.

No one knows if this dog is house trained, crate trained, good with other pets, spayed or vaccinated. She is a stray dog found on the side of the road. This dog needs someone who is patient and has some experience with a frightened dog. This is NOT the dog for a first time owner or for anyone who does not want to work with her. As a trainer, I believe this dog has potential in the right home. She will need to be kept securely on leash at all times to avoid her bolting. A new owner would need to be vigilant to keep doors and gates secured at all times and to not let her off leash even in a fenced yard. She needs positive training methods - NO punishment, no choke chains, no prong collars - NO force. I will give her adopter a FREE behavior consultation at my training center or in your home if you live in the Farmington Valley.

Officer Mark Rudewicz reports that she is doing a lot better today and has relaxed quite a bit. She is not microchipped and was not wearing a collar. If not claimed, she will be up for adoption. Prefer no small children in the house because her history is unknown. If you know who owns her or are interested in adopting her, you need to contact Officer Rudewicz at Simsbury Police Department to apply.
