On Wednesday November 23 the owners of Dot went out to dinner and left Dot in the hotel, which is not unsual. Somehow Dot opened the door and escaped. There were reports of hotel staff and guests seeing her roaming around the area for a few hours and then reports of her that night in a neighborhood. There has been no reported sightings since Wednesday.
Time is of the essence. The husband is military and had to return to work, and Cindy is staying behind to try to locate Dot. I am trying to raise money for Cindy to be able to stay in the area and continue her search.
To stay in the hotel another week, it will be roughtly $1200. That does not include food, gas or the rental car she needs to stay. Please if you can donate anything to help her locate Dot, that would be great! The hotel will not help this family at all.
Here is the original posting from the owners: "My dog somehow escaped out of our hotel room last night while we were having dinner. I'm desperately looking for any help I can get in finding her. We are staying at the Residence Inn Perimeter East in Atlanta. That's 1 exit east of Perimeter Mall. She's a 2 year old Shiloh Shepherd (looks like a long haired German Shepherd). She's microchipped but not wearing tags at the moment. Please message me or call Home Again - the microchip company - at 1-888-466-3242 and reference chip #985112003632489 Her name is Soldotna, but she also answers to Dot or Dottie. I'm begging you, please help if you're in the area, or know anyone who is. We're offering a $500 reward. And anyone willing to pray would be really really appreciated. EDITED TO ADD: I fear that people aren't reporting seeing her to animal control or the police - it IS the right thing to - if she is picked up they will scan her chip and we'll find her! If you can lure her to you and get her that's awesome too. Just pease don't chase her or only post online or call the 800#. Someone has got to catch her!"
It amazes me the amount of support everyone has shown in sharing this information far and wide. But now we need a different form of help.
