Hank went missing on Friday 5/19 around 2:30PM when he got lose from the dog walker. He was last seen around Roscoe St. and Lake Shore Drive. We heard there was an accident and a dog was hit and killed around the time he went missing but we have checked with 311, CACC, various vets shelters and Lost dogs IL and there is no record of him or of a dog involved in a car accident. We still have hope he is out there until we have some answers. Please spread the word and keep an eye out for him. If you see him, do not chase him as he is confused and scared. Sit on the ground and try to give him a treat or softly call his name. I just want my baby home safe and sound, or to have closure if someone witnessed the accident and can confirm it was him. ;(. Thank you in advance for your help!!!

  • Don't give up hope. Never accept what you don't know for sure. If the police confirms the dog, then maybe. But please keep on searching and have faith.

    Who the heck is this dog walker that shouldn't be walking dogs in the first place? Please tell us because I have two dogs and use walkers often.

  • Christina~I am so sorry that you have no real closure, either way. You said you've tried every avenue possible, so I assume you checked with the policeman taking the accident report or have read the report? You said there were two witnesses, were you able to show them a pic...

    Christina~I am so sorry that you have no real closure, either way. You said you've tried every avenue possible, so I assume you checked with the policeman taking the accident report or have read the report? You said there were two witnesses, were you able to show them a pic of your dog to get a more definite answer? What about the drivers of the cars? Could there possibly be some security videos in the area that may have caught your dog in that area around the time of the accident? A possible police car video? One last idea. Could you check w/Streets & San to see if they had to dispose of a deceased dog, on that day. I wonder if they have logs of what they have "picked up", for lack of a better word. I'm sorry if I have repeated what others may have said. Just trying to brainstorm to give you closure.

Lost Dog!

Maizie has been missing since Tuesday night. Her family lives near Webster and Cleveland in Lincoln Park and have been searching all over (and posting the usual places). She is chipped and was wearing her collar. She has also been going through chemo and needs meds, so if you see her please contact her family as soon as possible (she is very friendly and will respond to her name). Reward offered.

Or 708-415-0290

  • Good news everyone! Maizie is back home. A good samaritan found her chained to a tree near Whitney Young high school and called the owners. I'm told that she wasn't in great shape but doesn't seem to have suffered permanent harm.

    Good news everyone! Maizie is back home. A good samaritan found her chained to a tree near Whitney Young high school and called the owners. I'm told that she wasn't in great shape but doesn't seem to have suffered permanent harm.

    The bad news is that she is unlikely to have traveled from her gated front yard in Lincoln Park to Whitney by herself. It seems that she was taken from her yard on Tuesday and then abandoned at some point afterwards. Just a gentle reminder to city dog owners (myself included) about leaving your dog unattended (which I do quite often).

    Don't mean to hijack the thread Winnemack, but wanted to get the news out to those following this ordeal. Thanks for posting!

  • That's awesome! Her owners are regulars/friends who come into my job often. So glad she's back!

Landscaping recommendations

Can someone recommend a landscaping company to do some cleanup in my yard and trim 7-8 small bushes? Thanks in advance.

  • Hi we are currently using Kemora landscaping. Great work. Very professional and always on time. (773) 910-1800

  • We just had a great experience with Mariani: https://www.marianilandscape.com/. They got a quick quote and did a really nice job. They were scheduling about 3-4 weeks out when we booked them but perhaps their timing has changed now that the summer is underway?

  • Sue

    We live in Roscoe Village and have a 15 year old son who cuts lawns. Not so much experience with the clean up and cutting but always something to learn and I would be more than happy to accompany him and guide him. He is available this weekend. Let me know if you have any interest.

Great and not too expensive dog trainer in Lakeview?

Our small 1.5 year old rescue dog is great and for the most part extremely well behaved. Occasionally, though, when we're outside -- she's always on leash -- she'll bark at runners going by when she's startled by them and frightened.
Does anyone know of a really good local (Lakeview) dog trainer iwho isn't wildly expensive, and would be willing to do a session or two to teach me how to handle/help her to change that behavior?
Thank you

  • joecool

    hi

  • We had a really good experience with Kiki Yablon (http://kikiyablondogtraining.com/), who came recommended by our vet at Family Pet. She charged $150 for an initial 90 min session, and $115 for additional hour-long sessions as needed, with free e-mail support in between sessions. Also, she comes to your house and evaluates the situation as it would occur in your dog's own environment.

Stolen packages

We had 3 packages stolen from our front door today (clothing items removed and packaging left in walkway behind building) after they were delivered at 4:43pm. Wolfram between Mildred and Halsted. Police report filed.

If you see something, say something! We've had years of safe online shopping, but please learn from our mistakes and don't get anything delivered to this neighborhood.

  • See my recent post regarding Stolen Packages (and a bike) on the 800 block of Lill -- maybe the same person/people? Our neighbors are reminding UPS delivery people to RING THE BELL. We are on the lookout too.

Please Help! Lincoln Park Dog Attack.

<CHICAGO FRIENDS PLEASE HELP> This morning my dog Clue and I were walking down Wrightwood towards Clark. There was a girl (who appeared to be in her mid twenties) standing on the sidewalk with her white and tan pitpull (approximately 50 pounds) who was wearing a black collar with a little black box on it. As we were passing, the dog lunged, completely unprovoked, and grabbed my dog by the throat. The dog would not let go. The dog finally...

<CHICAGO FRIENDS PLEASE HELP> This morning my dog Clue and I were walking down Wrightwood towards Clark. There was a girl (who appeared to be in her mid twenties) standing on the sidewalk with her white and tan pitpull (approximately 50 pounds) who was wearing a black collar with a little black box on it. As we were passing, the dog lunged, completely unprovoked, and grabbed my dog by the throat. The dog would not let go. The dog finally released its jaws from Clue's neck after I repeatedly punched the dog on the head and grabbed the top of the dog's snout. As Clue was gushing blood from his neck I moved him a little ways down the block. The girl exchanged words with the postal worker who witnessed the attack and then she fled the scene. If you know this girl or have seen her before PLEASE private message me. She had short brown hair, worn in a ponytail, and was approximately 5'5". She might be Hispanic. At the time of the incident she was wearing black and white athletic shorts and a red t-shirt. She most likely lives in the Lincoln Park neighborhood. Clue suffered three puncture wounds to the neck. We have been in the ER all morning.

P.S. I love all dogs, I have no problem with pitbulls, I simply don't want this to happen to anyone else in the neighborhood because this girl has no business owning a dog.

  • Debbie Lincoln Park resident

    I'll be on the lookout for you, as I live on that block. Similar thing happened to my dog in our yard a few years ago when a dog lunged at her through the fence posts and grabbed her snout (requiring a traumatic ER visit). I know how upsetting that is.

  • I am so sorry this happened to you and your dog. For a fast recovery. This is about PUBLIC SAFETY AS WELL, I hope you filed a police report because the police can be on the look out as well. This could have happened to a child -
    I too will keep my eyes open. Also contact all Vets in 60614 zip code they might be helpful in finding this dog. Also dog walkers in your area. Good Luck!!!

    File a police report keep photo evidence of your dogs injuries. Also never punch a dog in the face I know it might seem instinctual. It actually does nothing except make the dog who is biting, bite down harder. What you should do in a dog attack is use what is called a bite stick or break stick. I've used the end of a leash before as well. To break a bite on any dog you get to the side of the jaw and slightly insert. The dogs break immediately because of the foreign object. Sadly most dog owners don't know this and many dogs suffer worse injuries. Even if your dog is not aggressive, if you let your dog near dogs you don't know I recommend being educated. As a dog trainer in Chicago uneducated dog owners is more the problem then the dogs are.

Lost Yellow Cockatiel

Our beloved Ollie, a yellow cockatiel with bright orange cheeks, slipped out the screen door May 27 from Addison and Western area. Please let us know if you have any info. We miss him!!

  • A/K Steve Managed Animal Kingdom for 40 years

    He is probably in the area. Put his cage by the area he escaped from with the door propped open. Hang his toys just outside the door. If by chance you have recordings of his chirping play them often which may lure him to the cage. Check cage often. Good luck.

  • Please let us know when he is found....

  • I'm on the 2000 block of waveland and there is a huge tree in the yard a couple of houses down. There is a bird that I hear chirping and it doesn't sound like one of the wild birds outside. I heard it a couple of days ago and today. You can call me 773 216 7355
