A local non-profit animal shelter is asking for the community's help in locating a very special missing dog.
"Our dog Penelope got away from her foster home in the area of New Halls Ferry and Lindbergh from the Wedgwood subdivision on Jan. 9," said Anne Cashel of St. Animal Pet Adoptions. "We're desperate to get a sighting of her but want to make sure that the public knows not to chase her."
Cashel said Penelope is a "terribly scared dog and she will not come to people," adding that the St. Animal Pet Adoptions group has spent weeks going out to the neighborhoods talking with businesses and residents and will continue to do so.
