Default Introductions + Please help us find our missing tpoo!

https://www.facebook.com/FindShae


Hello everyone,

I have been a lurker on this forum for a long time and have benefited greatly from your collective wisdom, particularly when we first welcomed poodles into our lives. We have been fortunate enough to now have three toy poodles into our family: Shae (2 yrs old, black), Drake (1.5 yrs old brown) and Cairo (1 yr old apricot).

I know this is a poor way to approach introductions and apologize for posting this possibly in the wrong forum but our family is desperate for help in locating our missing baby girl, Shae.

On Christmas Eve, while my husband and I were in Mexico, we were informed by our pet sitter that Shae was missing. We were particularly concerned because we live in an urban area of NJ and the temps dropped significantly that night. Thankfully, the wonderful folks at our local Animal Control informed us that they had not received any calls regarding any injured or deceased pets in the area.

We have posted fliers all over our area in hopes of finding our baby girl. In the 60+ hours since Shae has been missing, we have received a few leads - one of them letting us know that they had seen Shae being picked up by someone in a car. In part, this gives us a sense of relief as this person likely saved our girl. However, Shae still remains missing...

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

1. Spread the word and keep it alive: This is critical. We have created a facebook page https://www.facebook.com/FindShae to serve as a central hub to share information. Please "Like" the page, and more importantly, please Share it. Even if you do not live in the NJ area, it only takes a few seconds to share this page but that simple gesture can make a world of difference to our little girl. We would like to get the word out far and wide (particularly since she was taken by car) and would be extremely grateful for any media attention.

2. If applicable, please post a flyer in your neighborhood, car, high traffic areas, dog parks, pet stores, and other likely areas. The copies do not need to be in color.

3. Keep your eyes peeled for dogs who look like Shae.

4. Send Shae positive vibes. Our baby girl is very shy and generally afraid of her own shadow. The thought of the kind of stress this ordeal is placing on her shreds our hearts to pieces.

With sincere thanks,
Maricel Hermann

Thank you so much to both of you for your words of comfort and encouragement.

Truthfully, it is hard to articulate what I feel right now, which I can only describe as a mixbag of sorrow, desperation, helplessness and emptiness. However, in the midst of all that there is also hope. At times when I drift into despair, I find myself clinging to Shae's image in my mind and I get re-energized knowing that I mustn't give up because she wouldn't give up on us either.

This is a particularly trying time in our family as there is a heartbreaking preface to this story:

Last Christmas, our family was also grieving because a day after we arrived in Europe for the holidays, we received a phone call letting us know that our first dog, Bryce (7 month old black tpoo) was hit by a car and died. There are simply no words to describe how I felt when the phone rang on Christmas Eve this year letting us know that our sitter lost Shae. I think I'm still very much in denial as I still can't fathom how something like this could happen to the same family two Christmases in a row. What are the odds?

Nevertheless, must keep the faith...

I'm curious, what about the story strikes you odd? I wish our situation wasn't real yet sadly it is and our little girl is still missing.

Here's a link to an article re Shae's disappearance: http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/2...mobRedir=false

To expand on the "lost-found-lost again" point:

1) Shae was lost by our pet sitter on 12/23 around 11 PM

2) Shae was found by a Good Samaritan that same night while she was sitting on a stoop. He thought she belonged to the folks who live in that building. So he surrendered her to the couple who answered the door. The couple acknowledged that Shae was not their dog but agreed to take her in anyway in hopes of finding her owners.

3) While exiting their door, the couple apparently did not secure Shae so she managed to run out the door.

So yes, admittedly bizarre set of circumstances from start to finish but unfortunately Shae's disappearance is very real and so is our heartache.

The best thing you can do for our girl is to please go to https://www.facebook.com/findSHAE and share the link with as many people as you can so we can cover as much ground outside of our immediate location.

If you still don't believe our story, then I wish you well anyway.

So happy to hear she has been found! A Christmas miracle. I hesitate to say this but perhaps you should look into a different pet sitter. You don't say whether this is the same pet sitter from the year before. Glad your girl is home.
