Big thanks to Lakewood residents

Dear Editor:

I am a member of the family whose dog Fred was lost by a groomer last week at 48th Street and Chandler Boulevard.

We are thrilled to say that our story has a happy ending. On the evening of Sunday, March 16, at around 5 p.m., Fred was finally located in the vicinity of 37th Way in Lakewood.

After six days and countless hours of searching, hoping and praying, we were finally blessed with the return of Fred.

It took 10 people and quite a lengthy sprint before Fred finally became too tired to run any more.

Fred is now back home with his family and is doing well, he's lost a little weight but doesn't show any signs of serious injuries.

On behalf of my family we would like to sincerely thank the residents of Lakewood, who called us with sightings and helped us in any way they could. If it wasn't for them we do not believe that we would have our dog back home.

We would also like to thank the Ahwatukee Foothills News for running the story on their Web site ( and in their newspaper so the word got out there and our dog was returned home, safe and sound.

Thanks to you all.

Allison Maize
