More Sass-looking Dogs on Leash Reported

In the last couple days we've received a number of new calls from well-meaning individuals who saw dogs being walked who looked like Sassafras. We typically can't follow up directly on these, but do ask the callers a number of questions and they always offer to keep a lookout. (We always recommend that the callers simply ask the person if they recently found the dog they are waking. Barring that, we also recommend that callers snap a picture and then re-contact us so they can send us the picture... our cell doesn't accept photos.)

The calls were related to:

Friday early AM (Jul 29) - On 31st NW, east of Tennyson - A person who regularly walks her dog in the area reported seeing a beagle being walked that was not familiar (she had not seen the person nor the dog before). The dog she described sounded a bit bigger than Sassafras.

Tuesday afternoon (Aug 2) - Off Massachusetts near the American University circle - A woman who has been a great resource in getting the word out was driving in her car on her way home and saw a beagle being walked near a building. She thought it could be Sass, but did not see the distinctive tail.

For more on why we think Sass is unlikely to be found on someone else's leash, see this earlier blog post.

Of course, it's possible that one of these was Sass and we encourage people to continue contacting us if they see a dog that matches Sass' description.... We are very ready for her to come home.
