Last year, a dog walker lost Sassafras, a 4-year old brown/white/black beagle mix. Many sightings of Sassafras were confirmed in the months after she was lost by a trained search and rescue dog but we have not had a confirmed track since December.
It has been a very mild winter and today we are very fortunate to have an amazing group of supporters who will be out again today posting flyers in neighborhoods where Sassafras was tracked last year, in particular in Chevy Chase and the American University – Tenley campus area. We hope that we will find out that Sass is still out there, and that we can renew our hope that she will be home soon.
Sassafras has ears that are more erect and smaller than a typical beagle. Her right side is mostly black (with brown and white) while her left side is mostly white (with black in the middle). When lost, she weighed about 20 pounds. She is chipped, but likely no longer has her collar. Pictures are attached.
If you spot her, please try to take a cell phone picture (if available) and call immediately: (202) 664-2301. (Email is firstname.lastname@example.org) S
