One Dog Found, Another Still Missing

A missing toy poodle was found yesterday by a local family after seeing an announcement posted on Warminster Patch.

A family has been reunited with a beloved pet after an alert Warminster Patch reader saw the dog wondering in the woods near her house.

The toy poodle, Ketzie, went missing on Friday, Dec. 21, last seen in the Hampton Road section of Warminster. The owner's neice, Karen McDevitt, posted an announcement on Warminster Patch on Dec. 26, and that same day she received a tip from a reader who saw Ketzie on Sunday.

Another family member canvassed the neighborhood and eventually found Ketzie hiding in a wood pile. After a trip to the vet for a checkup, the dog was returned to his owners.

"Thanks again for the lost & found section in the Warminster Patch," wrote McDevitt in an e-mail to Patch. "Without this section, I believe this little guy would still be out there in the cold looking for his owner.  Both he and my uncle will sleep soundly tonight!"

There's still no happy ending yet for the O'Donnell family, who lost their dog, Chesty, in November. It's been more than a month since the rat terrier/mix got loose from the O'Donnell's yard, in the Bristol and Mearns road area. Some readers have reported sightings of Chesty, most recently near Hatboro Road, heading toward Northampton. A $100 reward has been offered for information leading to Chesty's safe return.

If you have any information about Chesty, contact the O'Donnells at (215) 672-1296.

can't help but be glad I located this little guy before this storm hit! Hope Chesty is in a warm dry place as well Eva

We are glad Ketzie was found! Thank you to the Patch and the people who helped. Chesty is still out there somewhere and we will not give up. A big thank you to Susan Curtis of Banacom Signs & Designs for designing and make our weather resistant "lost Chesty" signs we've put up around the area.

We are still looking for Chesty. The "Lost Dog" signs have been generating some activity and we hope that someone will see them and help us locate Chesty. Thank you to all who have been looking and praying.
