What a cutie. 🙏🏼

Meet Ira!

Sweet Ira came to us after her owner was hospitalized and could no longer care for her. She is a sensitive soul and would love her future family to show her that the world isn't so scary. Ira loves fuzzy squeaky toys, and does the cutest little nibbles on them. She did live with another dog in her previous home that wasn't the nicest to her. She would like to be your one and only for now while she decompresses. Ira is some kind of hound mix, and sometimes her hound instincts make her want to talk about all her thoughts and feelings. She probably wouldn't be a very good fit for apartment living.

Eddie come back!! It’s too cold out there poor sweet baby!!🙏💕🐾Missing Dog!

*Update: Eddie is safe and inside! He was able to be lured into a yard on the property (with food provisions), and once inside, a quick closure of the fence gate, had him secured.

We had another Dedham dog missing for about an hour today as well. That one is also home safe.

Rescued dogs are often very timid in nature- add an unfamiliar place, unfamiliar people, sights, sounds, and activities, and even slightly unseasonal temperatures for many of whom come to New England from down South) - and ‘timid’ can take on a whole new meaning!

Please be extra cautious with fence gates, doors, children who aren’t too attentive - and remember that the slightest ‘spook’ or opportunity, can send them running.

If you have a rescue dog with any type of fear or fear-based reactivity, it may be worth consulting with a dog behaviorist so to learn about other training tools you can employ to help keep your dog safe. Feel free to call our office and we can suggest some resources!
………
Eddie has been seen multiple times on the cameras which were set up so to help determine trap setting locations. The good news is that once he returned to his own property, he has seemed to be staying within the confines of it. The property covers a lot of acreage but recurring sightings in an area, is positive. Hopefully Eddie gets hungry enough today, to risk venturing into a trap, or tires himself within reach.

As always, thank you all for your support. The way you all rally to help animals, is one of Dedham’s greatest gifts! Further updates, as we have them. Please continue to call us with any info!
……

Eddie was last seen on Common Street/Rt 135, and in/out of the wooded area, Dedham, dragging an orange leash. He has been missing for about two hours. He is a rescue who does not know the area. He is skittish. He also likely does not even know his name, which we prefer you not call out to him anyway. If seen, please notify Dedham Animal Control 781 751 9106.

If seen and near, please sit/crouch on the ground, quiet, gentle, unalarming, and allow him to come to you - not the other way around.

We are already working with our good friends and colleagues at Missing Dogs Massachusetts
