FOUND DOGS – Shepherds
We have two found dogs, one in Hoback Canyon and the other in Barger – both are shepherd or border collie-type dogs.
A dog was found in Hoback Canyon near Red Creek on Wednesday, September 14th. He is a black and white shepherd or a border collie. Young male. Has a gray collar, but no tags. To claim, please call Terry at 307-733-8637.
Update - Claimed! Another dog showed up at a resident’s house in Barger on Sunday, September 25th. He is a black and brown shepherd, very friendly and loves children. They guess the age is maybe between 9-12 months old. To inquire, call Tami at 307-537-3245 or 307-231-0728. UPDATE WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 28: "The shepherd mix dog in Barger was picked up 9/27/11. Thank you pinedaleonline."
This horse was found in the Wind River Mountain Range the week of August 22-26th. The family that found it brought it to their home in St. George, Utah. They would like to see it reunited with its rightful owners. If not, they are willing to keep it and give it a new home with their herd of horses and mules. They said it had a very broken pack saddle still attached when they found it. To inquire further, please call Cindy Gooch 435-313-6412.
MISSING DOG - Beagle - UPDATE: FOUND!
A family from Utah lost two beagles in the Spring Creek Trail area over Labor Day weekend (the beginning of September). The female beagle was found in the Soda Lake area, north of Pinedale, and has been returned to the family, but the male is still missing. He is a copper beagle. He had a collar with a rabies tag, but that might be gone now. He is chipped. If seen or found, please call Karl Price at 801-718-4045 or email email@example.com. UPDATE: MONDAY, SEPT. 26, THE MISSING MALE BEAGLE HAS BEEN FOUND! "The male beagle showed up at the Box R Ranch last week. One of our wranglers called Animal Control, who then must have called Mr. Price -- because he called us and then showed up at the ranch to pick up his pet. It was a happy ending for all."
MISSING HORSES – Palomino and a Sorel
We have two missing horses, one lost in the Little Granite Creek area in Hoback Canyon and the other in Scab Creek in the Wind River Range southeast of Pinedale:
Double T, a golden palomino gelding, got loose at the Little Granite Creek Trailhead in the Hoback on Saturday, September 3rd. He went into the part in the middle of the two trails that was burned last year by the Bull Creek fire. He has a red halter and a greenish blue lead rope on. He is a herd horse and is not used to being left alone. He is sure to find other horses. He belongs to a 9-year-old little boy who misses him very much. For more information call 307-258-7323 Vikki Brown or 307-258-1183 Jason Brown.
Update: Found! The second horse was lost in the Wind River-Scab Creek area around Thursday, Sept. 22nd. He is a sorel horse with a rocking 69 brand on the front right shoulder. He has no top lip. He got away from a hunter. He may still have a full riding saddle with gun on the pack and a coat. If seen or found, please call 307-733-6740 or 307-413-0883, Sleeping Indian Outfitters in Bondurant.
