Evening Update: Good news! Aries was reunited with his human family this evening, according to Marisa, his rescuer.
We’re dog lovers here at Borderstan as longtime readers know. Losing your dog or cat is a pet owner’s worst nightmare, so we run notices of lost pets when possible.
Around 1 pm today, area resident Marissa was followed home by a large black dog. He found Marissa on the 1700 block of Willard Street NW and she has him safe and sound at her house in the vicinity of 16th and U NW.
Marissa says he looks a great deal like a Belgian Shepherd or Belgian Shepherd mix. The dog has a long black coat, pointy ears, a long tail and weighs an estimated 80 pounds. Marissa says he is good natured and friendly. The dog is wearing a chain-choke, but has no identifying tags. He is not microchipped–she has already had him scanned for a chip.
If you have any information or leads, please call Marisa.
