New Calls- Multiple Leads

Given the media attention, the phone is starting to ring with possible sightings, one of which has already been disproven. We'll keep updating this page today, so please come back frequently, and if you have ways to help us determine whether these are likely (in other words, you live in the area or could contact listservs), we'd appreciate the help.

SUNDAY - 11AM - HAMPSHIRE GREEN golf course (Silver Spring)

A group of golfers saw a beagle mix at the 10th hole chasing and howling around 11AM, wearing a reddish harness. They were about 50 yards away, so didn't get a very close look. Likelihood: We think that Sass has probably lost her harness by now, so probably not her...


A nice gentleman called that he's seen a beagle for a few months in the Brookwood estates area of White Plains, MD. About 10 days ago the dog was in his back yard playing with his Yorkies, had a collar on, but would not allow itself to be caught. Last seen 3-4 days ago. Likelihood: We think unlikely. Would mean other local sightings were wrong, but hard to rule out. He was looking directly at website and video and still thought it could be Sass. We hope to stay in touch.

TODAY - 1PM - Kensington near Connecticut Ave -- NOT SASS

Nice folks captured a beagle in their car, called us, and we requested they text us a picture... They did and it wasn't Sass. They promised to contact their local listserv to try to find owner. If it's your dog, contact us and we can pass along information. (We assume this is the same dog that we received a call about a couple days ago Kensington Pkwy and Iverness Dr in North Chevy Chase.)

SATURDAY - 5:30 PM - NE DC - Fort Myer construction depot entrance at the end of Adams St. NE (just off of South Dakota Ave at 32 St.).

Updated: This is not Sassafras, but Anne was kind enough to send a picture, so maybe we can help get this pup home:

From Anne: "Saturday around 5:30 p.m. when we saw a beagle mix that very closely resembles the photos on your web site.  She also seems to be the right age at about 3.5.  At the time, we did not know the whole saga of your search but we are dog people and we tried to get her to come to us with the turkey jerky we had.  She had no collar on and was alone so we thought she was lost and that's why we pulled over.  She was at the entrance to the Fort Myer construction depot entrance at the end of Adams St. NE (just off of South Dakota Ave at 32 St.).  When we approached her she retreated behind the locked gates of the Ft Myer construction.  But she did come out to get the turkey jerky!  We didn't think to snap a photo but I suspect she is staying there because she knew just how to get behind the fence there and seem to know her way around.  Also, she seemed well fed and healthy so maybe someone at Ft. Myer picked her up at a construction site and brought her there where they feed her.  (Just a theory).  I will take a walk up the street with the camera to see if she is still there." Likelihood: Low because Sass has not been confirmed on that side of town, but certainly could get there.
