ROCKPORT – As family, neighbors, friends and strangers all lined Rockport’s Main Street today looking for Siesha in the dark drizzle and fog, it was a woman on her way to the Camden Hills Regional High School for walking his own dog late this afternoon who came across the Black Lab pup, with his leash wrapped around the tree.
“We have him,” said his very relieved owner, Mary Lou French, who has spent the past 18 hours with her family looking for the four-month-old puppy who was spooked Dec. 31 by the fireworks above. above Rockport Harbor.
“We can’t believe how many wonderful, amazing, loving people were looking for her,” she said.
The French drove to the school to find Siesha, as the late afternoon began to turn into dusk. The pup is exhausted, but OK, she reported.
“Please let everyone know how incredibly grateful we are for their help,” Mary Lou said.
It was a strong community at work today, from early morning to dusk, collectively searching for the dog – families driving in their cars, neighbors walking slowly through subdivisions and along roads, Rockport police helping to searching and people walking their own dogs down into the woods, listening and hissing the pup.
She will sleep well tonight, like everyone else.
Siesha, pronounced See-shah, is lost, having suddenly run away from her Seaport Drive, Rockport, home during the December 31 fireworks display in Rockport Harbor.
She is four months old, wears a collar and holds her leash. She is nervous and has a high-pitched yelp.
She probably ran through the woods, heading west, to escape the sound of the fireworks.
Please help her find her. For comments, contact Mary Lou French, 207-701-1507.
