Grateful Dogs Rescue is searching for a lost foster dog who has Addison's Disease and urgently needs medication. He has been missing since October 3rd.

Little Bert is a seven-pound Chihuahua mix who is dark brown with tan markings (looks black from a distance). He is wearing a blue collar and a blue Grateful Dogs Rescue tag and is microchipped. Bert has Addisons and needs daily medication.

He has been spotted around Martin Elementary School in South San Francisco. He is scared and timid.

I have read that little Bert was not found alive, but found. RIP sweet boy. Did he get hit by a car/ or was it from not taking his meds/ or not finding foo? So so sorry
