Found Dog - Prospect Park
This dog was found near the Grecian Shelter this morning(3/8, 9:30 am). Beagle/mix...He is wearing a green harness with a red rabies vaccination tag. I contacted the vet on the tag. He reports the owner as "Steven Grecco" spelling?? The contact info the vet had for the owner was 4 years old and no longer current. I currently have the dog at the Tennis House.
Thanks, P-jPark just notified us that the owner picked the dog up at the Tennis House (Owner picked him upo the same day.)

Found Dog - Nethermead
Found this dog in the Nethermead Sunday morning, March 2, during off leash (just before 9am), running loose with leash and collars on him, rabies tag but no ID. Waited and asked around for a while. Walked him around, but not sure how long he's been loose or if he was dumped or just lost (others said they'd seen him running loose, unclear how long).
Very slim mixed breed, young (under a year?), intact. Gray with white markings, stripe on face, white chest, maybe 35lbs?. See pic below. Very good/playful with other dogs, skittish with people, but very sweet. The vet on the tag is not open Sundays. Unfortunately, I have 2 dogs, one is not good with him. With friends we took him to the 71st Precinct, 718-735-0511. They may take him to ACC in Manhattan (on 110th Street) because they said Linden location was closed today!! Posted this photo and same info on Craigslist.
Found Puggle/Pug - Ditmas
Just found this sweet young male dog on Ave. H that seemed to have come from either Rugby or Argyle (though not sure how long he was wondering for so could be from farther) The dog is a young male pug/puggle, and is wearing a "bad to the bone" collar, but unfortunately, no ID tags.
Would really appreciate if you could help get the word out ASAP, another young woman (Victoria) took him in while I said I'd try to reach out and see if I had any leads w/ these pictures. (He's been adopted)

Found Dog -Park Slope...
I just found a cute female light brown dog wearing black collar on 3rd street and PPW. She's home safe with me for the night, but I would love to reunite her with her owner. I'm sure he or she is worried. (reunited)
Barnabyis a 1-year old Cardigan Corgi mix (born 10/31/2012). Although he is experiencing severe separation anxiety, he is a very fun dog! He has a playful personality, but loves to cuddle up and sleep most of the day after a little bit of play time.
He needs someone with the time and patience to work through his separation issues. He's great with kids (even small ones!), and is up-to-date on shots though he is coming due on boosters. He's a very healthy dog, and the only needs he has are booties for walking around in the snow - his paws are incredibly sensitive to the snow and salt.

Missing Pekingese Mix - East Williamnburg...
Audrey got away from her dogsitter around 4 pm today (2/14) and is still missing. She was last seen at Union Ave. and Montrose - by the Walgreen's - running South. She's wearing a pink and purple collar with hearts and flowers on it and a microchip tag. Audrey is a pekingese mix, around 17 pounds, an amber brown color with a black muzzle. She's about 1 1/2 years old and can be nervous around strangers.
If you see her, please do NOT chase her. Have a seat if possible, avoid eye contact, and see if she will come to you. Her mom is out of town and out of her mind with worry, and her bio sisters would also like to see her back where she belongs.
Please SHARE and call 347-451-3148 or 256-585-8515 with any information.
Lost Cat - South Slope
Lost 7 year old male - orange and white cat in South Slope, Brooklyn. House cat lost on 2/8 by 6th Avenue and 18th Street. He has a 1/2 tail.
(He was found trapped in a neighbor's wall - got through a crawl space.)
"Alice" is a sweet, playful and loving blue-nose bull terrier (pit bull mix) -- She's in great health, had all her shots and is spayed. Her "Dad" lost his job and asked me to help find her a new home - he can't afford to keep her. She adores humans but is not a superstar with cats or other dogs - best for her to be with a family of humans. $100 adoption fee and references required. She's a treasure.
Anyone who can foster her or can offer a forever home can call me --

Whiskey The Cat Needs A Home
This demure, calm, intelligent cat is looking for a new home. Last spring his owner abandoned him. Since then, I have been caring for him in our yard. With the collective help of this community (providing carrier, advice, rescue sponsor, foster volunteer), Whiskey made it to the vet yesterday and is in a foster home.
But, he needs a permanent residence. Whiskey was so loving and calm in his new surroundings, even purring at the vet. He is up to date in shots and has been given a clean bill of health. If you'd like to meet him, he has a flexible schedule. He is a true companion who will be devoted.
Found Yorkie Mix - Leferts Gardens
I'm currently looking after a 3 legged dog which I think is a yorkie mix. I took him in out the cold last night. He's young friendly and energetic. I was told about you guys. Not sure what you can do about this but any help us appreciated.

Re-Homing a Wonderful Dog
We are looking for a special new home for our 4 year old cocker spaniel mix. He is a very affectionate dog and will welcome you home with a whole body wag and even some kisses! He is up to date on all vaccines, neutered, house-trained and responds to commands like sit, come, down, shake, and off. He can however be food aggressive and in combination with a new baby, it has become too much for us to manage. Please let us know if you are interested in meeting this sweet pup. firstname.lastname@example.org
Foster Home Needed-Abandoned Dog
Currently at Animal Care & Control: She is being named ADAH for reference purposes. We hope to have a picture shortly.
The back story...
I found an abandoned dog tonight, tied up to a piece of construction equipment, right by the Peninsula, off the Nethermead. She was definitely abandoned because whomever left her there with an old shirt and a bag of kibble.
THE DOG: Turned out to be female, Shepherd/Pit mix but she does NOT have the heavily-muscled Pit build. Approx 35 lbs. The ears were clipped. Definitely NOT vicious or a fighting dog though. My dogs, Phoenix and Stetson, found her before I did and he allowed them to approach and sniff. A fighting dog would have gone after them right then and there. My cellphone went dead before I had a chance to take a picture.
STATUS: I was able to locate a police van in the park and the officers eventually took her to AC&C on Linden Blvd. Since they did not mention she was micro-chipped when they got back to me, I'm assuming she was not. These three officers who assisted with the situation tonight were SUPER. They stood out in the rain with me for over an hour, let me borrow their cell-phones, called Sean Casey (no space left), called Barc in Williamsburg - really did everything I asked of them and more. Just feel like their efforts really need to be acknowledged. Nice to know these three are out there.
I know this is a total LONG SHOT, asking people to reach out for dog, sight-unseen, but I figured I'd try to leverage all the good will that exists amongst the dog owners in Prospect Park and turn a really sad story into one with a happy ending. It IS the holiday season after all.
Missing Dog - South Slope
FIDO Note - this dog appears to be living in prospect park last seen near band shell not too long ago.
I live on 16th Street and 7th avenue and this morning my fearful dog, Casey, broke free on our walk and ran away. She is a black shepherd mix, around 50 pounds with brown pays and legs. She was last seen wearing a black collar and pulling a green leash. We just adopted her from Sean Casey animal rescue and don't have tags yet.
She has been a feral dog before and has spent some time living in Greenwood Cemetery. She is very emotionally and mentally damaged and we desperately want to find her so we can get her back on her medication. it's very likely that she's gone back to Greenwood.
We would love it if you could post this to your site and have anyone with any information, sightings, etc call us at 347-587-0470. Thank you!

Tigger Is Lost – Manhattan
Tigger is about a year old, 50ish lb lab/pit mix. He has a brindle coat with a white chest and a white strip up his nose. One of his ears is ripped from an injury he sustained pre-adoption. We’re constantly checking all the shelters on a daily basis. We’ve postered all of Midtown Manhattan. He is microchipped so if anyone finds him, bring him to the nearest vet, hospital, shelter, etc. and they will contact us immediately.
(He was found a month later)
Found Husky - Bushwick
Collar but no tag. He is in good condition and seems young. We have a big dog and cat and so can't foster him. Would love to find his owner!
Thanks for any help.
(FIDObrooklyn Facebook and lost dog postings did the trick)
Lost Dog - Downtown Bklyn
This sweet dog ran out of Fort Greene Park this morning. Last seen in vicinity of Flatbush and Willoughby. She (Trixie) is microchipped, but was not wearing an identification tag or her license (she is licensed). Her collar has a rabies tag.
(The owners have her back)
Found Shihtzu Doggie
One of our walkers spotted a loose dog, and we managed to wrangle her and bring her to the office. She's a timid little shih-tzu. Very sweet. Clean ears and coat and has some extra meat on her ribs, so we think she's loved by someone (they located the owners)
Found Dog - Cobble Hill
We found a maltese mix? dog last night at 2am near Henry and Warren in Cobble hill. Attached are a couple photos. no tags or id, was wearing a little green sweater
(The owners contacted them within a day. Happy ending)
Two Dogs, Two Cats For Adoption/ Foster
Due to death of owner.
My name is Cory, Manager at Park Slope Veterinary Care. One of our very good clients passed away suddenly and has left behind 2 dogs and 2 cats that need homes/ foster care urgently.
Thanks to efforts of FIDObrooklyn Facebook followers, the two senior dogs and the two cats whose owner passed away have been placed with homes and foster homes...
Quoting from Lisa Guido's posts on our pages.
Lisa Guido I drove the dogs to White Plains today to meet up w this terrific woman who is taking them home to Massachsets. She specializes in senior adoptions, such a kind thing to do! There were a couple of rescue groups who pieced this together, will post when I can get the names right. Both cats are placed, I'm told. Poor old babies, I'm glad they're landing with good caring experienced people.
FIDO - Fellowship in the Interest of Dogs and their Owners Twenty Paws Rescue and SNARR Animal Rescue Northeast coordinated these adoptions. The dogs left today (as a pair!) to their new permanent home; one cat found a permanent home and the other is in a foster with them possibly adopting her. Just got that directly from the son of the deceased lady, who also writes, "Thank you everyone for what you guys have done for me and my family it means a great deal to us. Thanks again for everything."
1st - Baby is a 10 year old spayed female domestic with calico coloring. She is overdue on vaccines and has a history of asthma. This condition seems easily maintained.
2nd - Billi is a 9 year old spayed female domestic mostly black and white. No major medical history noted. Overdue on vaccines
3rd - Liberty is a 12 year old spayed female mix. About 52 lb. Some history of Urinary Track Infections. Up to date on vaccines. Goes to the bathroom outdoors
( Nina & Liberty adopted as a pair)
4th - Nena is a 10 year old spayed female lab mix about 130lb. No major health issues. Da2p up to date. Rabies vaccine due. Goes outdoors and on wee wee pads indoors.
I believe that there are no major behavioral issues with any of the animals. The dogs have been very sweet. They are not usually around kids so I do not know about that. They are all used to cats and dogs since they live together.

Found Frenchie - Clinton Hill/
I found the French Bulldog in the attached photo at about 9:45 this morning. She was running north from Myrtle Ave. on Washington, wearing a red harness and a chain link leash. I thought I would encounter someone frantically looking for the dog that got away from them, but nothing. The vet said that she is microchipped, but it is not registered. (She found the owner)
Found White Female Dog Near E. 59th Street Brooklyn
On Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013, I found a sweet small white female dog with curly hair which is yellowish brown dark around the paws and mouth. Not sure of the breed butit may be a Bichon Poo. It's larger than a chihuahua and it doesn't bark. Owner must verify color of collar and other distinguishing features that only the owner would know.
(he took dog back to where he found it. The dog led him to its home)
Missing Dog - last seen near 9th Street Path by Ball Fields.
Goes by the name of Chauncy. Black and tan shepherd mix weighing maybe 30-40 lbs. He may have ID on his collar. He comes (Made it home on his own)
Found Dog - Park Slope
Found shaggy black dog, maybe thirty lbs, corner of Butler & 4th Ave about 5pm. No ID. Cold and shivering. Red collar and black leash.
The person who found this dog has placed him with Sean Casey. (Thanks to a fidobrooklyn Facebook tip, Sean followed through on a lost dog poster. He's back home)
Missing Dog - Ditmas...
Neighbor's dog, JP, went missing this afternoon. JP is small (about 14 pounds) with short beige hair and might be wearing a beige Sherpa coat.
JP was last seen between Ditmas and Dorchester around East 18th or East 19th, around 4 and 4:30pm, and she is especially worried because he has limited vision. (Posters did the trick)
Found Dog - Prospect Heights...
I found this little boy in Prospect Heights without a collar tonight!! Whitish Terrier type with black patch over left eye and ears. Asked around but couldn't find anyone who recognized him, so I brought him home but would love to find his owner ASAP!
(Took a couple of days - posters did the trick)
