Mississippi River, Near Kellogg, Mouth of Zumbro River

8 posts in this topic

Hello, anglers.

We are looking for a Golden Retriever that went missing around July 1 while its foster family was visiting a wildlife preserve on the western shore of the Mississippi. It's a large, low area just downstream of Lock and Dam 4 and across the river from Alma. Here's a map to the area:

Google Map

Morgan was rescued from a puppy mill in April. She is extremely shy of people, but likes other dogs. She was sighted a couple of times in the first month after she went missing, but has not been seen lately. A live trap was set, to no avail.

We are hoping that someone has taken her in--a nearby farmer or perhaps a family visiting the preserve and campgrounds. But of course, we would like to bring her home. She is a special needs dog that requires a specific kind of training to help her overcome the psychological damage from the puppy mill.

Morgan is microchipped and was last seen wearing a collar with identifying tags.

Here is more on Morgan:

Thank you for your patience with this off-topic post. We have exhausted the obvious search areas and now are just trying to get the word out to anyone who might have been in the area.

Devon, I hope you find Morgan. Did you check the Pioneer? And put up some posters in the supper club and campground. Check Kruger campground too. I'm sure she's fine. Who don't love a Golden right? If she's chipped I would hope who ever finds her get's her to a vet. I really hope you get her back.

Someone was driving around Oronoco in a van yesterday trying to find the owner of a Golden Retriever they had recently found. They stopped and talked to my wife for a while. Could have been from the madness of Gold Rush, or you never know, the dog could have followed the Zumbro all the way over. July 1 was a while ago.

Wow, you have to wonder about that lost Golden in Oronoco. Did your wife happen to see the dog? Or notice if it seemed excessively skittish? You're right--a dog can travel a long way in a couple of months.

I do foster for the rescue group from time to time, but Morgan was not my dog. Her foster is just heartsick over this and has spent weeks distributing flyers, talking to nearby residents, local authorities, etc. I'm sure she has covered the immediate area quite thoroughly. That's why we have branched out so far with our search--even to posting on fishing forums! blush.gif

Thank you for your kind support.

Oh, right. Yes, the foster combed the area pretty thoroughly, including the campground. I believe the dog was originally lost very close to that camping area.
