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.
