According to Monday's publication of the Sun Chronicle, a show dog disappeared on Saturday afternoon from the Crackerbarrel Fairgrounds in Wrentham, Mass. The four-year-old, male golden retriever, named "Bond," was being groomed when a canopy fell; the sound spooked him and he bolted.
Search parties have been searching high and low for the missing dog and a Facebook page to help coordinate those efforts has been established. On Monday, the following information was posted:
We have teams out in cars and on foot searching and have not seen or had any sightings of Bond reported. We are utilizing findtoto.com and several other outlets to get the word out about Bond. Animal search teams have been contacted and we have some tracking dogs coming to the site this afternoon to explore some other areas Bond was seen on Saturday. In addition we have been in touch with animal search experts and animal communicators that specialize in locating lost pets.
The runaway dog was last spotted near the Wrentham Dog Park at North and Emerald streets at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday.
Bond's guardians, who are from New Hampshire, have offered a $5,000 reward for Bond's safe return.
Bond was not wearing identification tags when he disappeared, because he was being groomed and his collar was off, but he is microchipped and tattooed. On the Facebook page established for Bond, the following information has been posted:
Bond is not just a pretty face; he is a beloved family member and loyal companion of his owner Carol who is devastated by this turn of events.
Bond is far from home, lost and scared. If you see him DO NOT chase him!
Anyone with information is asked to call the Wrentham police or phone 603-339-2702 or 781-956-9815.
