UPDATE:  Jacob has been found and then ran away again on June 21, 2020.  He was again found and reunited with his owner.

Jacob, a large hound of about 70#s went missing last night,  at about 6:45PM. While returning from a long walk, we ran across some deer and in the excitement, Jacob's collar slipped off and he has been chasing them ever since. He will likely become tired and hungry later, and seek out some civilization for food. If found, could you please contact Robbie O'Cain, 2127 Mountain Road, Afton, VA 22920, Mobile: (828)215-3503

REWARD -- LOST MAR 22, 2020 - POWHATAN, VA - My dog, Tanner, ran away from TNT Dog Training in Powhatan, VA on Sunday, March 22 at 6:30 am.  I have put up flyers and searched for him for a week and contacted the local animal shelter.  I thought I would reach out to all of you (even cat shelters) in case he has travelled (or been taken) and you have seen him.  I am desperate.  He is a 5 lb., tan (light brown) Pomapoo and was wearing a black and grey collar with his name "Tanner" on it and my phone number (804) 350-6906 or 804 837-4813.  If you know anything about him, please contact me ASAP.  There is a $1000 reward being offered.
