Have you checked with the police? There was a small dog running loose near the park in Duarte that an officer was trying to corner. I couldn't quite tell what kind of dog it was.

Now THIS is what local social media is all about! Working for and with people, not just spreading rumors or sharing jokes! It is also what an online newspaper should be doing, and I'm glad to see that you folks have reached out to the community to such good effect. I am so relieved that Kiwi is home again. -- Bjo Trimble

YAAAAY!!!! this is the BEST use of social media ever!!!! And also a good reason why licensing & chipping our dogs (and cats) is SO IMPORTANT! Congratulations, Kiwi, on a safe return from your adventure! Congrats to Mindy and family for getting their beloved fur-child back!

Such good news! PLEASE animal owners, put your phone # around your pet's neck. It is so simple and such a quick way to reunite with your precious pet.

Reiterating Kate K.'s suggestion: Please microchip your pets, too!
