Jesse is a black and tan, neutered GSD, between 8-10 years old. He came from a rescue in IA, and was adopted to a couple in Raritan Il, near burlington Ia. He ran away 1-16-08. He recently had ACL surgery on his left leg, and is still shaven. If you see him please contact Sara @ 319-431-1892, or Jan @ 319-350-8295. There is a reward for finding this dog.

<span style="color: #000099">Here are some photos of Jesse. If anyone is in the area, please help find him. Before he went into rescue, he was found in a house with his owner who had passed away at least 3 weeks before Jesse was discovered, along with the other dog in the last photo.

Anyone in the Monmouth, IL area? There have been some sitings of a GSD that sound hopeful.

Re: Male Lost In Raritan Il-Search 1/26

Update.......

We would like to ask for you help once again in the ongoing effort to find Jesse. We are planning a search Saturday Jan. 26th starting at 1 PM. The location for vehicles to meet is the Roseville Elementary School 265 West Penn Ave. just east of Main St.
Our goal is as many vehicles as possible with people willing to get out and do some walking as well.
We will try to sector each vehicle into a different area to cover as much as possible. Those of you who live in this area are our biggest asset and we want to thank each one of you for opening your hearts to this dog.
If you can spare some time on Saturday to join us we would be so appreciative. We are coming form Cedar Rapids Iowa.

An animal communicator had been contacted a few days earlier. This gentleman was in New Zealand when he called and said that Jesse's energy was good. He gave us a location of W. Jackson St. in Macomb where E and N 1200th St intersects. As it turns out, Jesse's adoptive mom Nancy was sitting in an office in that location when I called and gave her the information.

Our search will include the areas around Raritan, Smithshire, Olena, Macomb, Monmouth, Table Grove and Vermont. Quite a large area.

Jesse was lost from his adoptive home on Tues Jan. 15th, 10 days after his arrival in Illinios. That location address is 397 10th St. in Smithshire.
He arrived at the Cedar Rapids Animal shelter in mid-October after the death of his owner. He was fostered for almost 3 months in Marion, Ia before his recent adoption and move to IL. He was wearing a padded black collar with tags. His most identifying feature is a recent surgical scar on his left hind knee. The hair should still be significantly shorter in that area.
Jesse is very attached to men but will be frightened to approach any one. If spotted, assistance might be needed to capture him. He is not aggressive but will obviously be confused and fearful.

There remains a $600 reward for his return.
My contact information is Jan Erceg 319-350-8295

We will never forget the kindness the people in this area have shown us. We look forward to meeting you tomorrow. Thank you so much!

I haven't heard anything. I'm sure I would have heard if he had been found.

Jesse Was Found!!!!!!!!!!



Jesse went up to some kids near Colchester, IL near the Argill State Park. The parents called the number on the tags and sent pictures to confirm. He is skinny but okay. He has been missing 19 days and eluding searchers. He was about 20 miles from home.

His leg is fine and he is indoors now waiting for the winter storm to clear for his return. These folks had not seen a flyer or heard about him. It is really a miracle he decided to approach the kids and still had his tags on!

Re: Jesse Was Found!!!!!!!!!!

HOW BOUT THIS FOR AN ENDING....Jesse is now back with us!! he was abandoned by the owner that he ran away from, and we got a call from a lady who had assumed care for him. He is now officially a member of MY family, and will spend the rest of his life with us!!!

Thank everyone for all their thoughts prayers, and wishes for this dog. he is now home!

Poor Jesse that he was abandoned again, but suck luck(and perhaps some karma) that he ended up with you again!!! May you all find your true purpose for one another!
