A recent rescue bolted today while on a walk.
A recently rescued, black and white Shetland sheepdog is missing in Natick, according to the Granite State Dog Recovery Facebook Page. The dog's name is "Cooper," and he is 10 months old and weighs approximately 20 pounds. He has ID tags. Cooper ran off while on a walk, so he is dragging his leash. He is shy, timid and a new rescue, so it is recommended that you not chase him if you see him. He went missing from Brooks Street and Leach Lane, and was last see on Aqueduct Road, according to the Facebook post. If you see Cooper, call 781-801-9155 or 508-545-0960.
