Blue – Stolen GSP

Stolen-dog-3-5-13 BlueBlue was stolen on Feb. 10, 2013 from his owner’s car while they were at church in the Agua Caliente area. A person was seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, with the hood concealing their face. The dog is a neutered male GSP with a brown head and brown and gray patches on his body. He has a microchip, and a 3 inch scar on his left hind leg. He is very obedient. His collar was removed, and ditched on the side of the road. His family misses him very much, and hopes to get him back.

Blue is sick, and underweight, and has a very sensitive stomach. Any information leading to his recovery is greatly appreciated and a REWARD is offered for his safe return. If seen, please email or call Cheri at (707) 480-7919, Tom at (707)815-8036 or contact the Sonoma County Sheriff at (707) 565-2121 or Animal Control at (707) 565-7100.

Missing since February 10, 2013.


Jake is a 3 year old neutered male GSP. He stands rather tall and has a nice long cropped tail. His liver spots are darker in color. He went missing on Friday 5/18 from the Sonora/Lower Twain Harte area at Longeway/Lucky Strike/Good Shepherd Roads. Jake’s collar came off and he is not microchipped. He does not travel well as he sufers from excessive salivation and vomiting with car/truck rides.

Pete is a 3 year old, 60-pound. spayed female GSP with a docked tail. She has a liver mask and a white lightly ticked body. She is larger for the breed but slender and in great shape. She disappeared from her backyard in Sacramento near Don Julio and Elkhorn Blvd. between 4:30 pm and 8 pm on Saturday, April 23rd without a trace. She was wearing a blaze orange remmington collar with a blue bone shaped tag with her name and my phone number on it. Unfortunately, she is not microchipped. She is skittish of people she doesn’t know but an absolute sweetheart and would warm up quickly. We’ve had a few reported sightings of her but none were confirmed so we’re unsure if they were, in fact, her. The first was Friday, April 29th between Watt Ave. and Walerga on Don Julio Blvd. around 2 pm. A neighbor said he saw her running around the neighborhood. The next sighting was May 5th on Elkhorn Blvd. near Rio Linda High School. The caller said she saw Pete with a homeless man on bicycle around 3pm. The next sighting was May 7th and this individual said she believed she saw Pete once more with a homeless man on a bike in downtown Rio Linda between 3 pm and 5 pm. The last sighting we’ve received was May 11th. Once again this caller said she saw our girl with a homeless man in front of a store near Del Paso Blvd. and El Camino Blvd. around 6pm.

If seen, please call Sarah at (530) 713-6843 or (916) 515-7925 with ANY information!
