Cranston Family Searching for Missing Dog

Have you seen this dog? She's missing and lives in the Meshanticut/Cranston High School West area.

A Cranston family's dog is missing and her owners are asking for help tracking her down.

The dog, named Lei Lu, is described as a Black Lab/Shepard mix female. She's 8-years-old and has a docked tail. She lives in the Meshanticut Park/Cranston High School West area.

If you've seen her, call Richard or Maria at 401-275-0240 or the Cranston Animal Shelter at 401-464-8700.

Her owners said "she is the best dog a family could ever ask for," in an e-mail message. 

"We adopted her from the Warwick Shelter 6 yrs ago, and she is the closest thing to Lassie you could ever hope to have."

Lei Lu may not come to strangers, but if you have a tennis ball, "she is your best friend."

She was last seen wearing a Thanksgiving-themed collar.

People on the RI Lost pets Facebook page reported seeing a similar dog in the Warwick Mall area by Route 2, but some of the information is conflicting.

Maria, a technician at Oaklawn Animal Hospital, can be reached at work at 401-943-0500. Her cell is 401-316-3401.

Richard's cell is 401-965-2809.

This is my dog Lei Lu. She is the closest thing to Lassie that you could ever ask for. We adopted her 6 years ago from the Warwick Shelter. I was at Hasbro Children's Hospital with my daughter when this occurred, my husband had mentioned to me that LeiLu was agitated in our absence. After visiting us at the hospital my husband put her out in the yard to stretch her legs and when he went to check on her, she had escaped from our fenced yard. My daughters are in tears without her(all of us for that matter). Please help us bring Lei Lu home. Lei Lu is a family dog, she may not come to strangers, a tennis ball would go a long way to gaining her trust.
