Sweet old family member wandered off this evening and has not returned. She is mostly blind and mostly deaf. We live on the corner of 16th and 77th. She has a collar and rabies tag from Aurora Vet. Her name is Maggi and she is badly missed. Please call Troy at 206-280-9551 or Danielle at 206-735-0703.01/26/2014 at 9:26 am #58513
Any signs of her? I will drive by that area and look.01/26/2014 at 10:59 am #58518
she is still missing. Have checked the animal shelter website, posted on CL and checked the Facebook site for lost and found pets. we are about to head out too. thank you!01/26/2014 at 11:27 am #58519
I drove around and didn’t see her . Might try some posters in area. On my way back from Northgate will keep an eye out for her. Thinking maybe in someone’s yard or porch. Could she be in your backyard where you wouldn’t see her at first. Might even try asking around. Best of luck.01/26/2014 at 11:43 am #58522
Sorry to hear your lab is missing.
Be sure to use the ROMPS lost and found database. It can help broaden the search for missing pets.01/26/2014 at 2:37 pm #58544
Hi Troy – I second Gracie’s suggestion of hanging posters in the vicinity around your home – it’s a good, solid way to spread awareness to those who live in your neighborhood and nearby, who may have seen her but who aren’t on the web much. Missing Pet Partnership provides great tips on poster design. Also, Lost Dogs of Seattle, Three Retrievers Pet Rescue and Lost & Found Pets of Wa State all have active Facebook pages you can reach out to by sending a photo/info, as well.
If there’s anything you need help with, please let us know.01/27/2014 at 1:17 pm #58610

I live very close and will do a walk around today. Can she hear at all? Is my calling her useful or not? I wonder if she isn’t under some bush staying put not knowing what to do next. If we all looked around our blocks in any bushy areas that may help.01/27/2014 at 1:27 pm #58612
Someone has to have her, I’m hoping. Can’t imagine her not being seen by someone. Come on Maggie make an appearance!
I don’t live right by there but close and drove around twice and didn’t see her. Lots of alleys in that area I discovered. I was also looking on porches and yards as I slowly drove around that area.01/27/2014 at 2:08 pm #58633
Thanks everyone…for your ideas and support. Still no Maggi, although I had to go to work today so I’m hoping that she is in the backyard. We’ve called the Animal Shelter and gotten the updated list. We called the line that lists any animals that are dead and have been picked up. We called our vet. I placed a post on Craigslist. We had the cashier at Red Sun Market (now a new name) on 15th call last night and tell me that somebody had come in and reported seeing some people attempting to catch a matching dog over by 70th and 11th so we ran over there with another 20 flyers…no luck.
As for her hearing, she is pretty deaf. She can hear some lower bass tones, and feel vibrations. As for seeing, she can see better at a distance, but I sense that her vision is mostly blurry and that she can basically only see movements. She does have a good sniffer though.01/27/2014 at 2:09 pm #58635
Oh, and I also tried to send out a pet amber alert but think that they just took my money. Let me know if anyone gets a call or text like that so I can know if they are actually doing it. Thanks!!!01/27/2014 at 7:27 pm #58676
Does anyone know if there is a way to see if a dog being held at the Animal Shelter is Maggie if the shelter is closed until Wednesday? They seem to regularly update the phone database but not the online list. There is a dog that could match her description that was brought in today from 63rd and 15th NW listed on the phone but they don’t show any new animals online in the past couple of days. Thanks!01/27/2014 at 7:49 pm #58677
SmartsyArtsy volunteers there. I will shoot her an email and see what she can do to help. Fingers and toes crossed it is your pup.01/27/2014 at 8:30 pm #58682
I can look at the most recent record input (before they show to the public online) but I see no listing at all. sorry, since they are closed now, I cannot get anyone on the phone now. I have a pretty packed day tomorrow, but will try to get down there.
You posted no photo on CL or on here, so I wouldn’t know if it was she anyhow.
Please try to focus on the fact that she is probably warm and fed tonight.01/27/2014 at 8:45 pm #58690
Thank you! My avatar is a picture of Maggi’s gray chin, her collar and her rabies tag. It took me awhile to get the right picture early on. If you can get by there I would really appreciate it, but understand if not. Thank you all again!01/27/2014 at 8:57 pm #58699
SmartsyArtsy, I just sent you a PM with the case number that I heard on the recording.01/27/2014 at 9:00 pm #58701
Hey, I am a foster parent for the shelter and need to swing by tomorrow for some supplies. I will look for her. I can enter the building even if it’s closed or after-hours.01/27/2014 at 9:35 pm #58706
I just sent you a PM with a case number and my phone number. Thank you!01/28/2014 at 8:02 am #58732
Good on you Miss Julie. Keeping fingers crossed it’s Maggie. Please let us know.01/28/2014 at 9:06 am #58737
According to the chip number, it IS Maggi! Thank you everyone for all the good help, tips and support. Another reason that we are so glad to live in Ballard.

Whoop! Was hoping for a happy ending. Smartsy Artsy and Julie, you ladies are wonderful.01/28/2014 at 9:37 am #58739
I AM SO HAPPY! I have worried about your Maggi being out in this cold weather or getting close to 15th N.W.
Hugs to Maggi!!
Gold stars to Smartsy Artsy and Miss Julie.01/28/2014 at 12:18 pm #58749
She is definitely there and they will release her today! She was snuggled in a big blanket. :)01/28/2014 at 12:39 pm #58752
I am so happy they will release her today!! she;ll be back home being loved very soon.01/28/2014 at 3:05 pm #58766
I was able to pick her up this early afternoon. She is tired, a bit sore, and may have had a small stroke. But I took her to the office today and she perked up when we got there. She has spent most her days there since she was born so I’m sure it felt familiar to her. Thank you all again, for all of the help!
“It Takes a Village”!01/28/2014 at 3:44 pm #58774
Life is amazingParticipant
did some wonderful soul pick her up?
when my brat girl got thrown in the clink after escaping for a joy ride around the neighborhood (as opposed to your sweet girl who got confused and needed sanctuary) they wouldn’t give me her rescuers number(of course) but were kind enough to give them mine.
turns out this wonderful woman jumped out of her car in the middle of 15th and 80th where my girl was terrified running around in circles with cars honking and driving around her, and herded her into her car even though her old dog was in there and she was afraid of what my large German shepherd might do to him. she said she just had to trust because she “just couldn’t leave her there.” she is an angel.
I’m so very glad some angel made sure your girl was safe for you. it does indeed take a village and you are clearly such wonderful dog parents. what a lucky girl maggy is.
