Can you help reunite this dog and its owner?

I am posting this in hopes someone may recognize the dog as a dog a neighbor/friend/family member recently adopted. Let's reunite him with its desperate rightful owner!


Desperately trying to find my loyal buddy!

I had to find temporary housing for my dog, Sirus. The family I gave him to ended up posting him on Craigslist a few days later (October 27th).

 He is an amazing dog -loyal, well trained, and incredible with children and other animals. He also doesn't bark which is a strange but, distinguishable trait.

PLEASE HELP me find him!!! He is a blue heeler mix about a year and half old. I'm heading back home to Boston this week and NEED to find him before I leave on Thursday. If you have any information PLEASE CALL ANYTIME! DAY OR NIGHT!!!!

My name is Stefanie and my number is 1 508 918 8589

I sure hope that's true that all shelters scan for chips... have heard some are not always consistent. (One county's scanner failed to find chip on a lost dog; dog was adopted out w/no chip implant; vet scanned, found chip/owner; county wouldn't nullify the adoption; adopter wouldn't give dog back; owner never got her dog)

Sirus's owner might also visit (with photo, of course) all vet clinics to see if the dog has been taken there.

The dog is microchipped and the microchip company has been called to report the dog stolen, which means that, unfortunately, the pup has not been brought to a shelter, or he would have been reunited with his owner.

What's missing is the temp foster family's side of the story. From personal experience as a temp foster, dealing with an owner that doesn't live up to the contract can be challenging, to say the least.

Since Animal Services is a part of the SFPD, any report to the 'police' may get routed to AS anyway.

Instead of believing the dog was re-homed, the owner may want to contact as many shelters as possible and also consider that the dog may still be with the family or their relatives.

This gal needs a clear path forward.  She has been in touch with the people who were supposed to keep her dog for her.  They have admitted to re-homing the dog but will not give her any information.  The AC will not intervene as they deem it a civil matter. I do not yet know if she has called the police and/or if she is waiting to see if the couple will relent and cooperate with her.  She is supposed to be back here in SF Wed.
