He is shy and in survival mode.
PLEASE TAKE A PHOTO from a safe distance and report your sighting to the number below:
Nia dropped off her puppy in Chicago at a pet sitter who was supposed to be pre-vetted by Rover. One hour later, without Nia’s knowledge, the sitter drove the pup an hour away to Waukegan, IL where he immediately got loose.
For the next five days, the sitter provided false updates on the pups wellbeing. The night before Nia was scheduled to pick-up her pup, the sitter said the dog had just gone missing. When Nia returned, she uncovered the sitter's ongoing lie; he had been missing since the morning Nia dropped him off.
Throughout the past three months, Nia and her family and friends have been doing everything in their power to get the word out about her pup. They’re working with the Waukegan Animal Control, a humane investigator, postering the surrounding neighborhoods, and sharing his story across social media.
If spotted, please take a photo from a distance, and call immediately with any information - 773-231-9349.
