Benny, a white German Shepherd, was lost during interstate transport to his new home and needs to be found ASAP. There is a reward. Please pass on this link to anyone even remotely along the route, as dogs can travel.
We don't understand how anyone could not notice a dog this size was not there for such a long route, but strange things do happen, so we're just hoping Benny will be found soon.
Heartbreaking story... Benny, a white German Shepherd was rescued from a high kill shelter, received all of his vetting, and had a wonderful family adopt him. He was enroute to this family when he escaped from transport. If you have seen Benny or have any information, please call Traci Wood at 901 238 1724 or email her tparris2005b @ aol. com (take out the spaces first). Benny escaped from a transport between Atoka, TN and Corinth, MS. The route of the transport is detailed below.
There is a $500 dollar reward for his safe return.
He's about 70-75 pounds with long legs and knows his name. He's microchipped and was wearing a collar with a PAWS rescue ID tag and his yellow microchip tag.
Route taken from Atoka, TN to Corinth, MS:
Highway 14 going South to I-240
I-240 going West to Nonconnah Blvd.
Nonconnah Blvd. to Highway 72 in Collierville
Highway 72 straight south all the way to Corinth, MS
He was discovered missing when the transport pulled off at the McDonald's in Corinth, MS. Benny is an amazing dog who has had a terrible life; he was literally two days away from his happy ending. The family who is adopting him is set to spoil him rotten- please help us find him!
We received an email from our friend Bill today, pointing us to a great story.
