H/J Trainer's Corgi Is LOST in Fairfield County, CT - *UPDATE 12/19/12*
Well known (and loved!) Massachusetts Hunter/Jumper trainer Jordina Ghiggeri (who works for River Wind Farm) is desperately trying to find her LOST CORGI. There is a SUBSTANTIAL REWARD available for his return.
Andrew (aka "Andy") was with Jordina visiting in Westport, CT when he got spooked by fireworks on New Years and ran. He has not been found.
He ran from the top of Guard Hill Rd (near Clinton Ave/Ford Rd) at around 9:30pm. He was reportedly seen on Tuesday in the Wolfpit Road area of Norwalk, CT (about 4 miles away from where he started)o
The area he ran from is NOT familiar to him. The area is not "home". He was on vacation there and normally resides in another state. Thanks to the generosity of River Wind Farm, Jordina has been able to remain in Westport to find him. But she needs help!!! Anyone with any possible sighting or information should call her cell phone at i81-264-5243.
Andy is 11yrs old, loves people (especially kids) and dogs, and is very friendly. He no longer has a collar on. His is microchipped and a quick scan will identify him as well as provide contact information for Jordina.
i people have been kind enough to post his status and photo(s) on their facebook page. However, I know that many of you read this forum while at work and your work has blocked Facebook. Please know that you can find him and his information through other avenues. A quick Google search for "Andy Lost Dog Westport" will find you several options.
Please visit www.PetAmberAlert.com where you can find a flyer with his picture and contact information. If I post a link, it doesn't seem to work properly as the site has each animal's flyer done as a pdf file. However, to make your search for him on there SUPER EASY you should know the following: Name - Andy | State - CT | Zip Code -
Andy now has his own Facebook page, "Bring Andy Home". It includes several photos to help someone recognize him (and get an idea of what a wonderful guy he is).
That was the "original" post. However many of the few responses received indicated that they felt that the title wasn't helpful in indicating what the thread was about. As I was not the OP I could not change the title. The OP seemed to feel it was appropriate and did not want to change it. Therefore, in the best interest of Andy, I created a new post (as I indicated in the other thread).
The other thread is right below this one because I recently posted information there that I thought might be helpful to anyone who read it. If the mods want to combine them I don't have a problem with it . . . I just want to reunite Andy and Jordina.
I would suggest editing the thread title to include a location. People from that area are more likely to notice the thread that way.
Thank you for your suggestion. I have added the Westport/Norwalk area to the title.
I just hope that people outside that area will read it as well and pass the information along. You never know when a friend, or a friend of a friend, might know someone in that area. Every person we can make aware that he is LOST and not a stray or the dog next door is one more that may potentially spot him and help get him reunited with his family.
You don't have to know them to understand that the family is devastated by this and fears greatly for his well-being. Even to those who don't know Jordina and her husband, the tv news report done by Channel 12 on Tuesday illustrates just how evident that is.
