Dog walker faints, loses dog

Woman frantically searches for dog lost when hired walker fainted

A woman in Manhattan, New York, is frantically searching for her dog, who was lost when a hired dog walked fainted. According to the New York Post, Meredith McNaughton’s Shih Tzu/Maltese mix, Lily, disappeared on December 23 in the Canarsie neighborhood of Brooklyn.

McNaughton is hopeful that someone has picked up her dog and that she is safe. She told the Post, “Our gut instinct is that someone has her. We are hoping that they return her.”

On Sunday, McNaughton posted another flier on a Facebook group announcing that Lily has not been found, and asking for people to be on the lookout:

 Hi NYC 🐾 People, LILY IS STILL MISSING. 💔Our dog walker lost her in Brooklyn before Christmas and we miss her so much. 🔺 We think someone is keeping her as their own pup and need help spotting her. 🔺 Please be on the lookout and text a photo and any info if you think you see her! 🙏🏻🙏🏻

A $3,500 reward is offered for Lily’s safe return. The dog is microchipped, has an under bite, and weighs 9 pounds.

Anyone who has spotted Lily is asked to reach out to her owner and let her know. According to the lost dog flier, the email address to use is: jhnrls@gmail.com.

    I hope she is safe and if someone has her, they will see it in their hearts to return her!. People shouldn’t just pick up a dog and keep them. An attempt should be made to find the owner of a stray dog, contacting shelters, seeing if there is a micro chip, etc. If no owner is ever found then by all means give the poor dog a home, but to not attempt to find the owner is just plain stealing! Prayers Lily is found and returned.

    Did the dog have any identification on her other than a microchip? Hopefully the person who found this cute dog and does the right thing and have her checked to scan the chip so this woman can get her dog back. With that much of a reward, they can buy their own little dog rather than keep/basically steal this woman’s dog. Some people are so uncaring and never think that this dog has an owner. How would they feel if it happened to them?
