Merry (FKA “Mary”) is one of the Alabama 44. She was pregnant at the time HSUS surrendered her to the Lincoln Co shelter in NC. Merry was transferred to the Humane Society of Charlotte on 12-18-10 and placed in a foster home. She whelped her litter just before Christmas and 5 pups survived.
Sadly, Merry escaped her foster home at some point and is loose in the Charlotte area. The HS of Charlotte says there have been sightings of the dog and they are working on getting a trap delivered to the area. She is reportedly very wary of people. If you have any contacts in the Charlotte area, please let them know about Merry. It’s been so cold at night and I can imagine how scared she must be. And Merry’s pups are surely missing her terribly.
I will update this post if I find any other online notices for Merry or get any additional details to share.
Update, 1-20-10: Merry has been missing for a week, wearing green collar with butterfly print. She has been spotted with other dogs on Eastway Dr. near Sugar Creek Rd. and Fitchley Dr. in Charlotte. She seems to be staying near the railroad tracks. AC has 2 traps in the area and has been checking in with the foster mom frequently for updates. Craigslist posting for Merry here.
