Update: Booth was spotted Friday in Rock Creek Park on the path near 27th and Q Streets NW. Keep an eye out for him the neighborhood!
While Glover Park is two to three miles northwest of Dupont Circle, Booth has been seen in adjoining neighborhoods — and dogs can travel substantial distances, especially when lost.
Booth, has been lost since Tuesday night when he ran away from his Glover Park home. He is two-years-old and very timid, according to his owner, Kristi. He came from Kentucky, “so he is very new to the area.”
Booth is black with tan and white markings, about 14-inches tall and 17 pounds. He was wearing a bright neon green and green polka dot harness. Booth is not wearing tags nor does he have an implanted microchip.
“If you see Booth, approach very slowly. Do not chase. He will run. The best way to get him to come is by kneeling down and lightly tapping your hand to your leg,” Kristi said.
We saw a lost black dog near 15th and R Streets NW around 8:15 pm Sunday evening. The dog appeared to be a lab mix and was wearing a red collar. He/she was slender and long and weighed around 50 to 60 pounds (best guess). Several people pursued the dog as he/she ran east on Corcoran toward 14th, but the dog kept running.

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.
Update: Sophia has been located and is fine. Some friends of the owner were putting up “Lost” posters and met the people who found Sophia last night–they were putting up “Found” posters for her. Some students attending a conference at the Embassy Row Hilton on Massachusetts Avenue found Sophia near Cosi at the corner of Connecticut and R Street NW.
On Friday night around 10 p.m., a Cockapoo dog named Sophia escaped from her house at New Hampshire and Swann NW. She is not wearing a collar with her ID tags. Please call (703) 283-6753 with any information.
Description of Sophia: White in color with curly hair… small, about 17 pounds… Cockapoo breed but looks like a Poodle or a Pichon.
