Lost Dog in Warminster...Family grieving...Have you seen CHESTY?


Warminster area friends: PLEASE keep your eyes open for Chesty! Contact info is below if you spot him. Thank You!!!

The O'Donnell family's precious fur baby ran away on Friday 11/16, and he's still not back. His name is Chesty and he's a rat terrier beagle. He's mostly black with a white belly and some brown. If any one in the Warminster area has any information at all please call ELLEN O'DONNELL at 215-672-1296 or call or text HER at 215-620-7219. They love him and miss him and just want him home. Please keep your eyes open while you're out. Lost in the vicinity of Bristol and Mearns Rd. in Warminster. 
Keep your eyes open because as we all know dogs have been known to travel pretty far without knowing which way they are going.  He could be anywhere by now!

We still haven't found Chesty. He had his ID on so even if he was in an accident someone could contact us. He must be in a house or a kennel somewhere. I want to thank everyone who is trying to help us find our little dog.

I look for him every time I am driving around. I really hope you get him back really soon!

WBCB just posted this on its Facebook page. Could this be your dog? FOUND: A male Jack Russell terrier was found last night (11/26) in the Crabtree section of Levittown. He is wearing a collar. If you are his owner, please call 267-229-5468.
John O'Donnell November 27, 2012 at 07:02 PM
It is not Chesty. We called and the dog has been claimed by its owner. Thank you for posting!
Jennifer Mohan (Editor) November 27, 2012 at 07:25 PM
That's disappointing. I hope you find him.
Mary Alice Brancato November 28, 2012 at 02:40 AM
someone said on FB they may have seen him yesterday by Lemek Automotive on Jacksonville Rd. In Hatboro.
John O'Donnell November 28, 2012 at 03:53 PM
I spent sometime looking in that area this morning before I started for work. I didn't see him. But thank you for the information.
John O'Donnell November 30, 2012 at 01:39 PM
Someone contacted me and said they saw Chesty in Twin Streams, near Boyd and Twin Streams. I drove around this morning but did not see him. Please keep an eye out for him. Thank you.

I've been on the lookout for Chesty - hoping you find him soon!
John O'Donnell December 04, 2012 at 02:35 PM
Chesty is still missing. There is a $100 reward for Chesty's safe return, no questions asked.
Helen Diehl December 08, 2012 at 11:47 PM
I can't believe he hasn't been found. It is so odd especially since he has tags! I hope you find him!
Alex R. December 11, 2012 at 03:57 PM
May I recommend putting more signs out or bigger ones up. Especially in the areas he's been spotted in. The printer paper sized signs on telephone poles are always so hard to see, especially if they get wet and the ink runs. Also the pictures while going through lights or even when sitting next to them are hard to see quickly and sadly most people dont even look. The only sign I've seen was at the light by the post office on Mearns...and thanks to the patch I was already aware that it was Chesty's lost sign. I'll continue to keep an eye out, I hope you find him soon. I have 2 beagles so just seeing his little face makes me extra sad.
Helen Diehl December 23, 2012 at 05:47 PM
I thought you could deliver flyers to the neighborhood where he's been seen. Any recent sightings?
John O'Donnell December 23, 2012 at 06:44 PM
We haven't had any recent sightings. We still look for him every day. I will put out all weather signs in a few days and post them at intersections in Warminster and surrounding communities. We believe someone has kept Chesty and are either ignoring his contact info or his collar may have come off. Please keep an eye open for a neighbor, friend or relative that may have a "new" dog. Thank you to everyone who is helping.
Mary Alice Brancato December 24, 2012 at 03:30 PM
John we are all keeping our eyes open and praying as hard as we can. I just can't get this baby off my mind..he's out there somewhere snug and warm. I have no doubt he'll turn up soon!

Chesty is still not home. We have had tremendous support from the Warminster and surrounding communities, but to no avail. Please continue to keep an eye out for him as we believe he was taken in by a well meaning person that may not use the internet or social media. Thank you!
Helen Diehl February 06, 2013 at 07:02 PM
We still look for Chesty all the time. I really hope you find him!
John O'Donnell February 13, 2013 at 01:20 PM
Chesty is still out there somewhere and we continue the search daily. The "Lost Dog" signs have been taken down, but not by us. If our friends and neighbors would re-post Chesty's contact info to social media sites it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you to all who have helped.
Meg Walker February 25, 2013 at 12:43 AM
So sorry Chesty isn't home yet, dont give up!
John O'Donnell February 25, 2013 at 06:31 PM
It is difficult to know what to do next. We have tried every avenue we can think of but nothing has worked to find Chesty. I can only ask that everyone still keep an eye out and re post Chesty's info to any and all social media sites. Thank you.
Mary Alice Brancato February 26, 2013 at 09:02 PM
I haven't forgotten about your Chesty. I look for him everywhere. I can only think someone has him inside with their family. Hopefully as the weather breaks someone will see him. I think of him often and hopefully he'll be home soon.
John O'Donnell February 28, 2013 at 01:29 PM
Our last "Lost Dog" sign was taken down from Dautcher's farm property at the corner of Mearns and Ivyland. Judy gave me her permission to have the sign there and I don't know why someone would target Chesty's sign to remove. The sign was in the ground and not attached to the electric pole. It is disappointing. We just want our dog back.
Mary Alice Brancato March 02, 2013 at 12:16 PM
John someone messaged me yesterday and asked me why all Chesty's signs were gone from the area. They thought perhaps Chesty had been found. Sadly I told them Chesty was still not home. Now with spring coming more and more people are out and about. More and more folks take to walking their dogs and surely someone who may have taken sweet Chesty in might have been able to see them or someone else might spot him! I'll try to get his photo out there again on FB and keep on reminding folks that we still need to bring Chesty home! I am so very sorry that your family is still missing your fur baby!
John O'Donnell March 19, 2013 at 04:05 PM
I would appreciate any ideas to get Chesty back home. We have tried everything we can think of and have spent money in an attempt to have someone take notice of our little guy. We are very, very frustrated. Thanks for all who have been looking for Chesty!
Jim McDermott March 29, 2013 at 06:53 PM
There is a post on the Warminster Patch of a lost dog who looks very similar to Chesty. You may want to check it out.
John O'Donnell March 29, 2013 at 10:49 PM
Jim, thanks for the heads up. I didn't even see the story until you posted. Warwick took the dog to Warminster's kennels. Such a nice looking, scared pup, but not Chesty. I hope they all find their way home soon. Also, thank you to Ms. Mohan for re-posting Chesty's information in the Patch. Any and all help is appreciated.
John O'Donnell April 25, 2013 at 02:30 PM
Chesty turned 2 yesterday. Please continue to look for him. I believe he is still in the area and in someone's home. They have to take him out at some point so please contact me if you see a dog that fits his description. Thank you!
John O'Donnell June 17, 2013 at 07:09 PM
Chesty has now been gone 7 months. Someone has him. Signs were purposely removed. Our family is continuing our appeal to look out for him, perhaps locked in a fenced yard. Please continue to re-post his information and contact us if anyone has ANY information. My number is 267-253-0106. Thank you.
Mary Alice Brancato June 18, 2013 at 04:37 AM
Mr. O'Donnell I am so sorry Chesty is still missing. I always keep my eyes open for him. Since it's vacation season it might be a good idea to send notices to area kennels in case someone boards him while they are away. Good luck and I'll keep looking.
