Quick Bio:
-mutt-pound dog

July 16th 2005

Food, attention, stuffed toys, and most of all running loose around the neighborhood.

Not being able to get loose.

Favorite Toy:
He used to hate squeaky toys, but has since learned to love them. His favorite toy tends to be anything stuffed.

Favorite Food:
Raw meat

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere he can do lots of smelling, marking, and running.

Best Tricks:
He knows 23 at this time. His best tricks are spinning and posing. His favorite trick to do is "which one?", where he has to guess which hand his treat is in. He tries to cheat by puting both paws on both hands.

Arrival Story:
We were looking for a second dog and wanted a Sheltie, so we checked the animal shelter and paper ads weekly. After a few months the shelter had a Sheltie mix and we ended up going to see him. The next thing we knew we were signing adoption papers.

Treader has had heart disease for several years. Within the past year it has progressed into congestive heart failure.

It began with a light cough that soon turned into a wet, unproductive cough. He began slowing down on walks, not wanting to walk as far. A time or two he even had to be carried home.
At the vet's office he had to be put on oxygen after being given an x-ray. The vet prohibited us from walking him out in the heat of day at all, and no farther than our driveway.

For the moment he's responding well to medication, and he seems happy, but the vet is clear that this is not a cure and will only prolong his quality of life.

Not sure if anyone can read this. I know the site is experiencing bad fleas right now.

Treader's back home and safe. Him being gone was quite a scare. Despite being tight on money right now, when we got him back I went and got him a microchip.

Treader's always been good at getting loose and we've always been worried that something would happen to him. He'd be incredibly easy to steal--he's jumped right into people's cars before. And there's always the possibility he could get hurt or run over.
But as he kept getting loose and returning on his own or people called and told us they found him, it just got to be something we got used to.

But now he's been gone since Tuesday morning--he's never been away this long before! A neighbor says she saw him Tuesday evening, that's the last I've heard of him.

Checked the animal shelter, went there in person to see the strays just to be sure, but he wasn't there. Called the vet's office, too. Nothing.

If seen, please contact me at He was last seen in Saint Marys, Camden County, GA.
