One Darlington man is doing everything he can to find his missing dog.
The search began May 15 after a quick stop at in Bel Air.
LaSala said he took his new dog Cisco, a Bermese Mountain Dog and Newfoundland mix, in his truck to Petsmart where he stopped to buy some dog food.
As LaSala loaded the food into the cab of his truck he had a sharp eye on Cisco, but the dog found an opportunity, made a run for the door and slipped through LaSala's grasp.
LaSala said later that day someone saw Cisco in the Jarrettsville area near Wargo's, but no one has seen hide nor hair of the dog since.
"We’re just trying to exhaust everything we possibly can to find him," LaSala said.
LaSala adopted the shy, but friendly Cisco from Operation Paws for Homes on May 11. While the dog was headed north at last sighting, LaSala finds it unlikely the dog will find his way to the new home.
In the mean time, LaSala said he has been back to Petsmart and the Harford Mall, giving security personnel a description of Cisco in case the dog circles back to the area.
"We’re just keeping our fingers crossed," LaSala said.
While the dog is shy, he is also described as friendly and enjoys American cheese as a treat.
LaSala asks anyone who sees Cisco to either call him at 410-457-5345 or
Karen Smith, 410-879-7784.
