A 5-month-old, female, border collie (mix) puppy jumped from a moving car Sunday, April 22, 2012, on Golden Gate Canyon Road (west of Golden, Colorado). Please use email and social media to alert anyone you know who lives in the area or who hikes, bikes, or rides horses in the area, including in Mount Galbraith Open Space Park, White Ranch Open Space Park, Centennial Cone Open Space Park, and Golden Gate Canyon State Park.
[This is not our dog. We’re trying to help a neighbor.]
UPDATE: Monday night, April 30
I am THRILLED to report that this puppy was found last night by a family, living near Guy Hill, which is very close to where Oreo jumped from a moving car 8 days earlier. She is skinny and will go to the veterinarian today (Tuesday 5/1) for a check-up, but otherwise, she is safe and sound … back with her foster family.
I hope to get details on her recovery soon (including photos), but I do know that she was found Monday sometime and thanks to the wide-spread sharing of her lost report, the family knew who to call to report her being found.
BEST OF ALL … the family who found her might be interested in adopting Oreo!
Many thanks to everyone who helped!
UPDATE: Friday night, April 27
An animal communicator believes OREO is moving east (toward the town of Golden). She also believes that Oreo is staying to the south of Golden Gate Canyon Road off in areas where cattle graze. There is a good chance she is in the Mt Galbraith area. Keep looking!
The last real sighting was late Sunday (4/22) afternoon near Golden Gate Canyon Road and Horseradish Gulch Road (about 6 miles from her foster home).
