Mississippi River, Near Kellogg, Mouth of Zumbro River

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:

If you know of anyone who picked up a stray Golden Retriever near the shore of the Mississippi or up the Zumbro River, please call our 24 hour emergency hotline:

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.

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.

      @Rick G, it's about the questionable link they left. Either something hard is going to popup. Or someone may end up with a virus. Or both!

      I sure would like to see your video Curt, but can't seem to get past the error code myself. Hope it was a good one, and always look forward to seeing them..

      Thanks Rick G that will be this springs project one thin spray on the top and bottom should be just right. Seems they all have this issue you’d think they’d do somthing about it.

      I've got a 9 ah battery ordered in addition to my 5 ah batteries.   I'm thinking I should be in better shape.  But with the ice getting pretty thick I'll be switching to my gas auger soon.

      Thanks for the replies I will be getting one today. Poseidon one thing to check is your blade sharpness Last year I thought my drill was getting weak I put new blades on and away I went.  With this open winter they tend to dull faster just an idea. I'm getting about 15 -18 holes per battery in 20 inches of ice also with same set up.

      Teach them up in the way they should go. And they will never part from it! Great video!   Mom probably loved the day off too!
