Ryder is a 100 pound female bloodhound belonging to Millie Sommers. Ryder was staying with an EMT in Anderson who trains bloodhounds to be cadaver dogs, when someone visited the home and left the gate open. Ryder escaped.
Since the person watching Ryder is an EMT, the fire department, police department, the shelters and Anderson County Animal Control on the lookout for her.
Millie is afraid someone has found Ryder and decided to just keep her, since Ryder is very friendly and would walk up to anyone. Millie said on her Facebook page
"She's such a friendly girl she'd walk right up to any stranger. I keep hoping it'll be like the movies & I'll see her walking up the street up to our house one day. I thought about putting posters up in my area. I know they've been put up in Anderson where she was lost. Thank you so much for your help. Just say a prayer for her please..would mean a lot."
Since Ryder disappeared over the weekend, there's been no sign of her. Thankfully, Ryder is microchipped. This could make the difference between life and death, should she be turned in to a shelter.
It's a sad possibility Ryder may not be in the Anderson area. People are so cruel these days, and with no sign of her, there's a chance she was stolen.
Millie has turned to social media for help. Many, many dogs are reunited with their owners, thanks to sharing on Facebook, Twitter and other social media outlets.
Please share Ryder with friends, especially those in the upstate South Carolina area. Also check Craigslist, in case someone has this beautiful girl listed for sale. Millie can be contacted via Facebook.
