More than a month after he first escaped a Montville kennel, the owners of Lando, a 9-year-old Irish Jack Russell Terrier, are still holding out hope that the dog will be found.
"We have had no sightings for a few weeks," Lando's owner, Cindy Kramer, said Tuesday. "We are still hoping that he will be [seen]."
Kramer, of Denville, began posting photos of her dog around Montville immediately after he escaped from the Wags 'n Whiskers Inn on Aug. 5. Lando apparently slipped under a fence and the owners of the business helped search for the dog, in addition to hiring a pet detective from Nebraska to bring her own tracking dogs and specialists to try to find Lando.
His scent was last picked up in mid-August in the area of Taylortown Road and Kramer said no new scents have been picked up since then.
Kramer and her friends and relatives have continued to search the area of Montville, Kinnelon and Boonton since he escaped. They have also searched local shelters to see if Lando may have been rescued.
Lando has beige and black fur and a short tail. He is a shy dog and Kramer has asked that if anyone sees the dog, they contact her instead of trying to approach him. Kramer can be reached at 973-219-0182.
