Lost Dog

Hi, my dog got out around 11 am this morning and hasn’t been seen since. We live near whale rock, and I don’t know which direction she went. Her name is Ruth and she is a golden retriever great Pyrenees mix (large white dog). If anyone sees her can they call me at either (970) 492-5715 or (970) 310-3896.

Thanks!
Cassidy Page




My dog ran away while visiting my friend just SW of the Buckhorn/Stove Prairie cut-off. She's very sweet and timid, and will typically be phobic towards males. She's been out in the cold since 17 March, and I'd appreciate any information, as well as reward her return. She was seen running in the area multiple times, but hasn't responded to calls, and continues to evade. She's likely frantically trying to find me, but lost and scared. She loves fetch, so that might be a way to gain trust! TYVM for your care.

Found Dog

We received the following post to our Facebook page from Cody Stephenson:

Does anybody recognize this dog? We found it running down the backside of Rist canyon towards Stove Prairie and it wasn't trying very hard to stay out of the way of cars. Red collar, no tags. We took it home and will probably be holding on to it overnight until the Larimer Humane Society office opens tomorrow so we can drop it off and they can check for chips and reports. In the meantime, if this yours or somebody you know feel free to give me a call 970-749-4359. Sorry if this isn't the best place to post this, it was the only community page for that area I could think of, and I'm open to suggestions for other pages/groups.

For more information, and a picture of the dog, see Cody's Facebook Post.

Found Dog

We’ve been trying to catch this guy for a couple of days now, and this is as close as we can get. He’s hanging around the house. Does anyone know who he belongs to?
