A newly adopted Beagle slipped her collar in the Churchville area, and her new owners and shelter family are hoping for a safe return.
Jolene, a 2-year-old Beagle, was adopted from the Homeless Animals Rescue Team, or HART, based in Chantilly, VA less than two weeks ago, according to HART volunteer Lorelei Pate.
Jolene and her new family were visiting friends in Churchville on Tuesday, when she slipped out of her collar and ran away, Pate wrote in a message to Patch.
She was last seen along Maryland Route 22 between Harford Community College and Mt. Zion United Methodist Church.
The Beagle is about 26 pounds and spayed, but currently has no tags or micro chip. She is described as sweet but very shy, having lived most of her life on a chain.
Pate asks anyone who has seen the dog not to chase her, but to instead call 703-869-7803. As they roll in, additional details will be posted here.
