Dog Outside of Auburn Fred Meyer

I saw this dog outside the Fred Meyer at about 3:00 p.m. Saturday afternoon. This was after they had already a very similar dog caught inside the store earlier that day. It looked extremely emaciated and very shy. The dog would not let get anyone get near him as anyone that approached he would just trot away in the opposite direction. He did not exhibit any aggressive behavior and I did not even hear him bark once. The dog eventually walked off into a wooded area, despite the number of concerned citizens that tried to help the dog. Locals said they had seen a few dogs like that for the past few days.

This dog was seen as recent as three days ago near Marshall's at the Supermall. Apparently a man in a van were following him. If anybody has any information about this, PLEASE email me at

Good lord...this is the first I have heard of this poor boy. The dog caught inside of Fred Meyer is currently at my home rehabbing (she is a VERY sweet girl.) I think we will have to go for a walk down in the area to see if we can find her friend..

Where and the heck is Animal Control? People that don't take care of their pets SHOULD NOT have the right to own one. I hate seeing strayed or abused animals.

Has anyone put out some food for the poor thing?

my, mom and daugher were in a vehicle when two men were trying to approach the dog. We tired to help but could not get close to it. It never barked or growled. It is extremely skinny and weak. We are praying that someone can help it find a good home.
