URBANDALE, Iowa – A former puppy mill dog recently bought at auction has gone missing.
Local animal rescue groups returned from a Missouri auction last weekend with 56 dogs. Many of them had lived at Julie’s Jewels, a puppy mill that was recently shut down.
The missing Rottweiler was rescued by Hope Animal Rescue in Grimes, placed in a foster home but went missing in the area of 142nd and Douglas.
Searchers say there have been sightings in the area but the dog has had little socialization and is nervous around people.
If you see the pup, contact Hope Animal Rescue at (515) 709-0284.
