Adoption Group Offering Reward for Return of Missing Dog

White Ticked Male

Phoenix/ Tucson

A white male greyhound that was headed for adoption in California was taken from a greyhound hauling vehicle in the early morning hours of Saturday, January 20.

After loading 30 retired greyhounds from Tucson Greyhound Park, the hauler proceeded north on I-10. He stopped at gas stations in Marana and Casa Grande and believes that the dog was taken out of the hauling vehicle at one of those locations.

The dog was discovered missing when he made a stop in Glendale to drop off three dogs with a Phoenix-based greyhound adoption organization. Arizona greyhound advocates have scoured the area from Tucson to Phoenix hoping to catch sight of the missing greyhound. The State Highway Patrol and animal control agencies in three counties have  been alerted. As yet, there has been no sign of the dog anywhere along the route.

It is believed that someone either stole the dog out of the vehicle or opened the door and inadvertently let the dog loose.

Greyhound Friends for Life (GFFL), the San Francisco-based organization that was supposed to  receive the missing dog along with 14 others is offering a reward no questions asked for the safe return of the greyhound. The group is asking that anyone with information call the following phone number/numbers immediately: 602.573.0940; 956-454-2645

The missing greyhound  is a young 2-year-old, white male. He was wearing a racing collar and a muzzle when he was taken out of the vehicle.
