Nobody has heard of a missing dachsund! 2 Vets and 2 petstores that are all local have heard nothing.
Scout1, I'm hoping when you spoke privately you can answer my question? I'm looking at Hamburg Turnpike from Pompton Lakes to Wayne. There is a Newark Pompton Turnpike in Pequannock which is where one of the Vets is located. Did he mention it could be near Chilton Memorial Hospital or Route 23?
yorkiemalt he didn't give me an exact location ..... just said it was in pequannock and that he called carol asking for a specific area ..... but he knew it was near a lake and some woods ...... does that help ?
i do not know that area at all ..... never been to pequannock ....... i would need a landmark near where he was seen last. is pequannock off of 287N ? i seem to remember seeing signs for pompton lakes off of 287. i know i can shoot straight down 80 to get to wayne and 23 but i dont know if that would put me in the right area. thats why i need a landmark ... so i could mapquest it or someone who knows that area well to give me directions from where i am .
Oh this is just horrible! I know how much you love Jimmy, you have been the best dad to him ever!!!
I have to say, watching everyone help him out on here is simply marvelous!!!!!!!! YorkieMalt, Scout... you guys are just gems!!!!!
I will cross my fingers. And I have to ask... can you file a police report? Do you think they got rid of the dog on purpose???? Or hurt it? I don't know if you can file a police report, but if the lady was mad at Jimmy and wanted you to pick him up..... do you think she did something to him?
Pequannock does have a reservoir and woods around it! I sure wish this Carol was available. If she is the person I'm thinking of, I know her! The only other thing throwing me off is that her number 973-694---- is a Wayne #?
I just had a thought that maybe Jimmy headed in the other direction from Pequannock - towards Lincoln Park, Montville, etc.
That still would not explain why nobody in the Pequannock area knows of a missing dachsund - the obvious places - Vets, pet supply stores, etc. I can't tell you how much that is upsetting me.
I'll start calling in the other direction and keep you posted.
Yes, Pompton Lakes is an exit off 287N. That would bring you right into Riverdale which borders Pequannock. 287 and 23 are the closest highways to Pequannock. If it comes to taking a trip you'll have to call me and we can meet up.
In the meantime, I hope this gentleman comes back online or I can get Carol. Let me start going in the opposite direction - I'll keep you posted.
this is what its all about . people pulling together to help others . scout and yorkiemalt, you guys are awesome to help the way you are . i would help also , but living here in washington state, i am a long way away . i hope jimmy is found soon and with everyone working together , the chances are even better. good luck and good going !
A bit of good news! I just spoke with Lisa, our Animal Control Officer. She knows this Carol personally, said she's known her for about 20 years! She said she is a very kind person and is probably sick over Jimmy. She also does Rottie rescue (totally off the subject, but adds to her caring nature!) WHEW - I at least feel a little better.
Lisa is going to also make some phone calls and check up with her friends.
If you google Carol's phone # and go to the Mapquest map you will see her exact location. Yes, there is a lake close by but it is not Pompton Lakes. She is close to Lincoln Park which by the airport is largely farm land. I'm going to call Lincoln Park Police now and get the word out! There is no Animal Control Officer in that area, hard to believe being so close to Pequannock where there is one!
bharathi, I am so sorry about this. I know how it panics you, having been there myself. Perhaps color flyers posted in the area where he went missing will help.
I will tell you that the local ASPCA asked me not to mention the reward when Angel went missing.
Since I had full color photos along with her description on her flyers, they said it tends to cause those who are less than honest to steal other people's dogs that are "look alikes" to try to collect on the reward.
Good thoughts, hopes and prayers headed your way from the crew and myself.
I attempted to look up the post on here where he posted a picture of Jimmy. Bharathi, when you get back to the computer maybe you could post a picture so that the people in Jersey that are helping you look could also help with flyers and just showing people the pic to ask if they have seen him and to tell them to look out for him?
I keep checking back to this thread hoping for good news.
Scout and yorkie, you guys rock! It's always helpful when others get involved to take some of the stress and pressure off the owner. I sure hope that Jimmy is ok...he's probably scared & wondering where the heck he is right now! Good luck!
I think "bharathi" just said Boulevard and that is her home.
I called the Lincoln Park Police Department and they do have a report of a missing dachsund named "Jimmy" that was reported by Carol. They directed me to the Montville Animal Shelter and they also have a report from Carol.
Ditto, with the Pequannock Animal Shelter and Police Department. She has reported him missing everywhere! Thank Goodness!
I was totally going in the wrong direction, but at least we have that area covered as I reported him missing and left my number in case someone brought him in.
If you check the map Chilton Memorial Hospital isn't that far away and my neighbor (a huge dachsund lover, she has 5 now!) is leaving work at 3:30 and offered to take a ride around the area. I gave the best description I could and of course told Donna his name and made her promise to return him if she found him!!!!!
Oh and the farms I mentioned, that is great because it is that time of year again when people are buying all their plants and if Jimmy is around somebody will see him!
i received a call from carol .... jimmy was last seen by the knights of columbus on slingerland ave near the lincoln park lake. there are a lot of people looking for him =) one lady tried to catch him from what carol said but jimmy is one fast little dog !!!
yorkiemalt .. bharathi do you know where that knights of columbus is ?
When I found him he was already neutered. I took him to the vet to get all his shots, and he's staying in one of my empty kennels, considering he obviously isn't house broken. Let me know ASAP if he is yours, or I'm going to have to take him to rescue. I didn't find him with the collar. I put the collar and tags on him, with my kennel name and number, just in case.
