Lost dog – shy Yorkshire Terrier (Update – dog found)

by beth on November 8, 2015

Neighbors are asking for help locating a dog who is lost since Friday. It was last seen running into the the woods behind Fisher Road on the Marlborough/Southborough border.

The small, shy dog had only been at it’s new temporary home for a couple days, so is likely especially nervous and unfamiliar with area.*


2-year-old Yorkshire Terrier, grey, pink collar/harness and still likely wearing leash

Last seen in woods between Bringham St and Schipper Farm Ln off Fisher Rd

She is very shy. Try not to alarm her. Responds well to treats.

For ANY sightings, PLEASE CALL KATE at (508) 922-2349

PLEASE help us find her ASAP!

*Friends are helping the owner who is unable to care for Gert for a few months for personal reasons.

Updated (11/8/15 6:55 pm):  I got good news that Gert was located and retrieved a couple of hours ago. A facebook comment shared that she had been lured into a trap at a house on Brigham St. I’m told that she’s back with her caretakers and “apparently quite full of ticks and understandably shaken but otherwise is doing well.”

“Lured into a trap”??!! Does anyone know more about this? This is not something any pet owner in the area wants to here. IF someone knows enough about this, perhaps they can notify animal control?

I don’t know the details as I wasn’t in direct contact with the caretakers.

There is an organization called Missing Dogs Massachusetts. They will set out traps to lure skittish and frightened dogs that will run away if approached by a stranger. Many lost dogs have been found and returned to their homes this way. Please take a moment to check out their website and Facebook page to see the wonderful work they do, I’ve been following them for while and support their efforts.
