Acampo, Calif. family puts out distress call for deployed son’s missing dogs | Animal Lovers
ACAMPO, CA – A family in Acampo, California is seeking help finding their son’s missing dogs. Lou, 3, and Eva, 2, were left with the family when their owner, an Air Force cadet, was deployed on duty.
Rick Witt said his son’s pups disappeared on January 22 from the family’s home in Acampo, which is nestled between Lodi and Galt. Witt said he went outside to feed the dogs that evening and the dogs did not come for their dinner.
Following Lou and Eva’s disappearance, Witt scoured shelters, pet stores and even grocery markets in Galt, Gordon, Lodi, Bradshaw, Lockford and Bradshaw looking for them or anyone who may have seen them. He said he has handed out over 200 flyers door to door in the area and his wife handed out more at the salon where she works.
“The dogs are so friendly they’d just jump up in your car if you stopped and opened the door,” says Witt.
Witt said he fears somebody may have taken Lou and Eva to breed the two labs and sell the puppies. He said he’d happily allow the person to keep any puppies and offer them a reward, no questions asked, if they would just return Lou and Eva.
“We’ve had them since they were born,” Witt said. “They’re part of our family and we miss them. My wife is torn up over this.”
Anyone who may have seen Lou or Eva is asked to contact Rick Witt at 209-329-7612
