[Editor's note: The following was submitted by Grateful Rescue Dogs.]
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.
If anyone sees him, they should not try to catch him - he is scared and may bolt putting himself in danger.. They should try to keep track of him, if possible, and call 415.672.1343 or 415.889.9853 and report the location where he was seen. People can call these numbers anytime of day or night.
