Dogs (and yes, even cats) become frightened by the loud blasts from fireworks and will do anything to get away.
This year, we’ve heard of three dogs that became part of this holiday statistic.
A miniature collie (Sheltie) was seen running frantically around Orange Center Road on July 5; Penny, a 9-year old Bichon Frise (dyed pink) ran away on July 4th; and we’ve gotten pleas from friends and relatives of a West Haven woman whose beloved Pit Bull, Buck, 4, took off on the 4th of July.
UPDATE: BUCK WAS FOUND TODAY AT AROUND 3:15 P.M. HE IS HOME SAFE.
If you know the whereabouts of any of these dogs please drop us an e-mail at [email protected] so we can update the stories and maybe even help reunite them with their families.
