A puppy in Middle River had a “ruff” day on Monday, but all’s well that end’s well.
Baltimore County officials say emergency crews responded to the 800 block of Lowe Road (21220), where they found that someone’s pup had fallen into a storm drain.
FS Mike Joyce rescued the canine and checked him for injuries.
They found none and the dog was given a clean bill of health.
Improvements are underway at Perry Hall Dog Park to improve the grounds of both the small and large dog areas.
The Perry Paw Dog Park Committee, which is part of the Perry Hall Recreation Council, paid $3,630 to re-seed and prepare the soil. The committee also paid to plant a new oak tree in the large dog area. All work was done by Porter Landscaping.
Councilman David Marks worked with Lois Lorenz, the head of the Perry Paw Dog Park, to get the approvals for the improvements.
“I would like to thank this terrific volunteer committee for spearheading the improvements here, which are needed after more than three years of use,” said Councilman Marks.
Perry Paw Dog Park opened in the spring of 2014. It is one of four new parks that have opened in Perry Hall since 2010.
The Baltimore County Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in locating a dog that was taken from the White Marsh area.
Around 9 a.m. on October 16, a 10-year-old female Yorkshire Terrier named Bella wandered away from her White Marsh home. That afternoon, someone found Bella and placed an ad on Craigslist trying to find Bella’s owner. That individual was contacted by a girl that stated she was the owner. Thinking that the girl was the owner, the individual gave Bella to the girl – however, it was later revealed that the girl was not the owner. The girl had seen the ad, pretended to be the dog’s owner, took the dog, then sold the dog on Craigslist.
Detectives identified the girl, who was only 16-years-old, and charged her as a juvenile in connection with the case.
Sadly, Bella was never found and police began reaching out to the public to help find her and return her home. The person that the suspect sold the dog to does not face charges since they thought the sale was legitimate, but they do need to return the dog.
Bella has moles or skin tags on her hind legs.
Detectives believe that criminals may be taking lost pets off of the street and selling them on Craigslist. Criminals may also be pretending to be the owner of a dog listed as found on Craigslist just so they can take the dog and resell it on Craigslist.
Anyone with information on this case or similar incidents to call the White Marsh Precinct at 410-887-5000.
