Salma is Home!

We are semi- rural with not a lot of roads for the amount of land that is around. My house is next to hundreds of acres of conservancy land, vineyards, etc. with small clusters of homes scattered on large properties. We have myriad critters running around...fox, hawks, and last week I saw two eagles. I drove the local roads for several hours. Then headed to Kinkos to make flyers.

A dear friend helped me post them on phone poles, mailboxes. pet stores, convenience stores etc. We put out maybe 225 of the 300 I had printed. By ten o'clock last night I had a call from a local camp director who said Salma had appeared in his barn totally soaked, covered in mud and burrs that afternoon. He didn't see a flyer till around 7 p.m. when a camp lifeguard came back to camp with one. He called and I was out posting flyers but was able to get her at 10pm.

They had bathed her and even brushed her and of course fell in love with her immediately. So another adventure ends.


Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania
August 20, 2004

This morning around 8:30 am our 16 month old female Salma escaped from the yard at my home in Chadds Ford Pennsylvania.

Salma is a nine pound red rough with cropped ears and tail. She has a collar but no tags and is in show coat.

We are driving frantically but there is a lot of ground to cover in this area. I have notified local vets and both SPCA's. I'm going to do flyers next. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Salma is extremely friendly and would approach anyone or get into a car wiggling all the way.

If you see or hear of a dog that might match Salma's description, please contact: Bethann Lane.
