Have you seen Addie? A Georgia family is searching for their missing dachshund, who was separated from them on Saturday in downtown Blowing Rock.
Charles and Emily Heuer were visiting the area for the holidays when their 4-year-old dapple dachshund, Addie, disappeared from their rental property behind the downtown Blowing Rock Post Office.
Black and gray with a tan colored face, Addie was last spotted at the Food Lion in Blowing Rock around 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 1, which means she has, at some point, crossed over U.S. Highway 321.
The Heuer family extended their holiday trip to continue the search and are desperate to find her before they have to leave town.
“We live in Atlanta and we are just here for the holidays. We were supposed to return home on the 1st, but she was lost on the 31st, so we’ve been here scouring the area,” Charles said. “We will have to go home late tomorrow night if we don’t hear anything and just hope that somebody finds her.”
Addie has a very timid personality and has run away from the last two people to see her, so anyone who spots her may have to follow her and catch her to return her to her family. She’s very likely to respond to calling her name or her nickname, “Tookie.”
If you see Addie, please try to hold her there and contact Charles and Emily at 501-529-5223 or 404-844-1358.
Addie does have a microchip with the Heuer family’s contact information, so if you catch her you may also take her to a veterinary hospital or animal shelter where her microchip can be scanned and her family contacted.
Please help spread the word and help Addie get home!
