Missing dog in Lisbon recovered

Posted: Updated:

LISBON, Ohio - The owner of a dog that had been missing in Lisbon since last week said she has found her.

Kathy Smith said she found her dog, a two-year-old Bichon Frise named Sugar Bear, early Tuesday morning a couple miles from where she lost her, and said that publicity for her search helped immensely.

People may have seen the flyers posted around the community asking for help in locating Sugar Bear.

Smith said that she hadn't seen her dog since Wednesday when she stopped at the post office near route 45. She said she was just running inside to buy stamps, so she didn't lock the car door. But when she returned, Sugar Bear was gone, and her other Bichon Frise, named Strawberry, was cowering in the back of the car.

Smith says both dogs are from the same litter. She raised them since they were puppies, bottle feeding them because their mother couldn't produce enough milk.

Smith reported the theft to police and posted flyers around town. She started receiving calls later that week from residents saying they had seen her, but she was always too late.

On Monday night though, Smith had received another call about her missing dog being spotted near the Beaver Creek Candle Company, and went out to search for her. When it started to get dark, Smith said she went home to get her coat. After returning, Smith got out of her car, only to be surprised to see Sugar Bear jump in.

She said that besides needing a bath, Sugar Bear was in good condition.
