On the evening of Feb. 20, local residents lost their four dogs. Three Jack Russell mixes and a Chihuahua went missing from the area of Merrow Road and Baxter Street. The owner was informed that the Chihuahua was spotted at the at 128 Merrow Rd. around 9 p.m.
“The owner was told the Chihuahua was seen and possibly picked up by a motorist that evening and that the person was going to contact Animal Control,” said Animal Control Officer Tina Binheimer. ”However, we didn’t receive any call.”
According to Binheimer, the owner contacted all area Animal Controls, posted flyers and spoke to neighbors. Those efforts resulted in the return of the three Jack Russell mixes. Unfortunately, the Chihuahua is still missing.
Roo is a four-year-old brown Chihuahua. “She is terribly missed by her owners who are hoping she can handle the cold weather,” said Binheimer.
One of the owners said, “She is very friendly. She doesn’t like the dark or cold, and she should approach people.”
If anyone has any information on Roo, they can call the Tolland Animal Control office at 860-871-3676, or her owners Terry at 860-841-2037 or Kristy 860-841-0826.
