Know this lost Chevy Chase dog?

UPDATE (Sept 30) - Received text that owner of this dog has been located. Glad she is going home.

The phone rang this evening... It's been quite a long time. A woman was calling from New York saying that a friend who was watching her house had recently taken in a lost beagle and emails to neighborhood listservs had not come up with anything. So, she called us, which was quite thoughtful. Unfortunately, not Sassafras.

This is the dog:

The woman who found her says she's very sweet, likely 10-12 years old and well taken care of. There were no tags, etc. The dog was found on Stanford St, I believe. The woman who has her is taking care of her and won't give her to the shelter (although did call the shelter to see if anyone has reportedly a lost beagle).

If you know this dog, send us an email and we can send the phone number for the person taking care of her. We sure hope she's reunited.

And, we hope Sassafras finds someone just as terrific and the next phone call brings her home to us.


  1. Once again, Sass is helping to reunite a lost pet with its family. Beth and Jeff: Thankyou for looking out for others as you continue your search for your beloved Sassafras!

  2. I am so happy this dog found her home! Now it's time for Sassafras.

    I hope this won't upset anyone. I was checking Ellen Degeneres' website and looking at pictures of animals (Unlikely Pairs it is called) and the 47th picture caught my eye. In that picture there is a dog in a yard with a dog and a cat inside the house looking at this dog and this dog looks so much like Sassafras with the curled tail. In my opinion it looks like her but Beth and Jeff would have a better idea. I don't know. You just never know how your pet is found. There are so many crazy rescues of where and how people found lost pets. I read about this woman going in a shelter to pet cats and she found her cat there after being lost for a year! wish there was a comment next to it as to where
    this pic was taken. I did put a comment and I'm checking the replies.

    What if? Wishful thinking, yes, but I guess you never know. Here is the link.

  3. Took me awhile looking at the picture to figure this out... Dog in the yard is not Sassafras (too tall and tail curled wrong way), but amazing that you saw this so closely.

  4. I thought she was too tall as well but I was hoping!! I saw the dog immediately because I figured they were looking at something interesting. I zoomed in, my heart was racing. I so much hoped it was her and we could try and get in contact with whoever took this picture, you said, Never Stop Looking.

    I hope and pray everyday for you and Sassafras.

    Take care.
