LOST DOG – CHAMPAIGN, ILLINOIS – PLEASE SHARE
Christopher is an eight year old lab/shepherd mix who was last seen on Wednesday evening on Prospect and Springfield in Champaign, Illinois. He is a medium sized dog with a graying face.
He is very friendly, but nervous and scared. Within the past week, his owner passed away, he’s been at animal control, he’s been boarded, and he was headed to a new home when he accidentally escaped the evening of Wednesday 6/22/16 (Prospect & Springfield). There has been a possible sighting Thursday 6/23/16 near Daniel & Willis.
He is wearing a purple collar and micro-chipped. If found or sighted, immediately text (708) 921-9346 or please bring him to Good Friends Animal Hospital, 908 E. Main, Urbana.
Christopher had just been admitted into the Hospice Hearts foster program, and bolted from his foster home. Daily searches have been conducted. Appropriate authorities have been notified. Please help this sweet boy find his way to safety. He’s been through a lot.
UPDATE! UPDATE! UPDATE! 6/28/16
From Jessica Sempek, founder of Hospice Hearts, on Tuesday morning 6/28/16:
“I didn’t think I would type this…
CHRISTOPHER WAS FOUND TONIGHT.
After six days and nights on the run, Christopher was found tonight at 2 am. A huge thank you to everyone on the search team, but especially to Sarah Murdock Estrada for her tireless efforts in searching for him.
He was found running in Home Depot parking lot. His old neighbor was called to help. She sat down, and he approached her. He is now headed to doze for a few hours prior to heading to Good Friends Animal Hospital for an exam.
Thank you everyone for your prayers, shares, and time.”
