Update Tuesday morning - Cooper was found and is safe and home! Now stay Cooper!

Cooper a male chiweenie  was on a walk to the top of Winding Brook Road overlook towards Blueberry Hill Road in Bar Harbor and he took off chasing an animal on Christmas Day!  If you see Cooper, please call Tanya at 914-525-8791 or 207-288-8332.

The good thing is he is microchipped and was wearing a light brown collar.
If you find or lose a dog in Bar Harbor, please contact the Animal Control Officer, Diana at 207-461-2871

You can't assume that dogs will make their way home in the winter. All the snow disrupts the "normal" smells for a dog, and they may not be able to sniff their way home.
