Seen Sadie, the Australian shepherd?
According to the family and Wakefield Police Department’s Animal Control Officer Fred Guldbrandsen, Sadie was picked up by a passerby driving a maroon vehicle, possibly a Hyundai SUV, outside a neighbor’s home at 397 Pickpocket Road on Sunday, June 22, between 4:40 and 5:15 p.m.
Sadie is eight months old, weights 25 pounds, and has mostly black fur with some brown and white patches.
Her owner’s family purchased the pure-bred dog for the couple’s three young children at Christmas time after their older dog, a chocolate Lab, passed away in November.
The dog’s owner, Brennan Peaslee, said Sadie, who is not spayed, often wanders between her home at 361 Pickpocket Road and the neighbors’ home at 397 Pickpocket Road.
The residents of that home only visit on weekends, so when a passing motorist picked up Sadie and asked the resident’s son if the dog belonged to him, he said no, he didn’t know anyone with a border collie, mistaking the dog’s breed, according to Peaslee.
The neighbor, according to Peaslee, did not know the family had gotten a new dog. The same afternoon, when she didn’t see Sadie nearby, Peaslee spoke briefly with the neighbor’s son who told her about the incident and then she unsuccessfully attempted to find the car that had driven off with the dog.
Sadie is wearing a pink collar, but her ID Tag number, Wakefield 0925, had fallen off. She is not micro-chipped.
“I have full faith someone will do the right thing and bring her home,” she said.
