Help Find Cooper

Driving with your dog unrestrained in the car is extremely dangerous, as your dog, the driver and any passengers can get hurt if there’s an accident, but here’s a sorry tail from last Sunday and we are hoping you can help find Cooper the silver Yorkie.

Deborah Gandy was driving in the car on her way to a business appointment with her two dogs Cooper and Ricky, both loose in the car in Hartsville. Ricky was in the front passengers seat (very dangerous as if air bags are fitted and an accident happens and they come into action, a dog could be severely injured) and Cooper was in the back.  Was in the back until he decided to jump out of the open car window…he’s been missing since Sunday.  Cooper jumped out near the First Baptist Church in Hartsville.

The owner had taken his dog collar off and had it with her in the car but Cooper not only jumped out of the car, but is also unidentifiable regards ownership, without collar and dog ID tags or chipped. Sadly Cooper is also blind, on meds and has food allergies so it is imperative he is reunited with his owner and medications asap.

Sightings have reported that a woman was seen picking him up and put Cooper in her car, probably concerned for his welfare, as he appeared to be limping – this was reported happening near the Sonic Drive In on last Sunday, the same day Cooper jumped from the car.

A good friend of Deborah’s kindly made flyers which are posted up all over Hartsville and other friends have posted Cooper’s pic on Facebook in the hope that someone can help find him and get him back home. Facebook people are doing their utmostin the bid to find Cooper and bring him back home.

Deborah Gandy is certain her little dog is still alive and has pleaded for help to have her dog home safe.

“He’s my baby, and I want him back,” Deborah Gandy said.

If anyone knows anything about his whereabouts, Deborah asks that they call 843-229-9736 or they can drop him off at Coldwell Banker on E. Carolina Avenue or Allstate Insurance Company on S. Fifth Street in downtown Hartsville.

Make certain your dog has a collar and ID at all times and keep your dog safely restrained in the car.

Gandy is optimistic that Cooper is alive. She is offering a reward for his safe return. She said she feels like it was someone who cares about animals that stopped and picked him up, but they just don’t know how to reunite him with his owner. She is worried because he is overdue for his medicine, and she and Ricky miss him terribly.
