Lost & Found: Dogs on the loose in Elysian Heights

A woman named Beth reports spotting two apparently lost dogs in Elysian Heights. The pair were seen near the same spot during the last two days:

“There are two large dogs that have been hanging around the corner of Avon and Cerro Gordo St. I saw one last night – large, brown, Akita/Shepherd-ish looking dog. Then this morning while I was out with my dogs, I saw the same dog but he had a buddy with him – very coyote looking – brown, large, tall but much thinner than the other one. This time they were coming down Cerro Gordo from Elysian Park headed towards Avon. Two things – don’t know their demeanor – they could be harmless, but they might not be – and it’s always better to be on the safe side and steer clear of loose dogs. 2nd – maybe they belong to some who is looking for them – so thought this would be a good local venue to get the word out about them.”

    Call animal control rather than blog about it….they have a better chances in a cage than with traffic or worse….


    and don’t wait until Monday to call; last I heard, Animal Control closed for phone calls on Mondays. I used to have so many dogs stopping at my back gate I considered putting up a sign “Bark for Service!” but not so many lately. Guess hard times are here again for the dogs as well.
