"Joanie" is from Beirut, Lebanon, and is not accustomed to our climate and open areas. She has been running scared since Saturday, Dec 7th, when she escaped while being transferred to her new foster home. 

She has been spotted in the Scottdale Subdivision area, Glenn Ellyn Woods area off of Park Ave, Valley View, and most recently (12/11/13, 3pm) in the Foxgrove area just south of COD on Lambert. She will not come when called. Any help luring her into a yard or car would be appreciated! Also, please call volunteer search line at 630-863-5328 or local police if seen!!! This is a life-or-death situation!!!

Because it was so cold I tried to get her to get into my car on December 12 at Smith and Grandview, but she was off like a shot. I so hope you find her.

This is the last update on the Lost Dogs Illinois Facebook page: Joanie is still missing. Last confirmed sighting was on Thursday 12/12 at 11:30am at the intersection of Scottdale and Butterfield on the south side shoulder. Someone was able to coax her almost near enough to grab the leash that she is dragging, but at the last moment a car zoomed by and startled her. She took off running west on the south shoulder of Butterfield. Police spotted a dog in the neighborhood overnight, but it hasn't been confirmed that this was Joanie. We've been combing the neighborhood all morning. I spotted a large adult coyote in the Scottdale neighborhood this morning, and it may be causing false sighting reports. I was able to track the coyote back to its den in the Danada Woods Forest Preserve between Leask Rd and Naperville Rd., but saw no sign of Joanie or her tracks in the snow. Since it has been so long since Joanie's last sighting it is possible that she could've moved out and expanded her range in any direction. We hope that she is hunkered down and staying in the local neighborhoods and that someone spots her and reports in. We are still looking, and praying for her survival. December 14 at 2:35pm · Like ..

This was posted by Karen Clarke on the other thread. Hoping this shows promise to recover Joanie: It appears that Joanie has abandoned Scottdale and moved north into Glen Ellyn, presumably to avoid the coyotes. The last confirmed sighting of Joanie was on Fawell Sunday morning, and we have since found numerous tracks just north of there (her tracks show the dragging leash). We have established relationships with a couple of homeowners in that area, who are allowing us to place the food in their yards. We hope to keep Joanie alive by feeding her, and to habituate her to that one area. And maybe one day soon, she will approach someone again and be apprehended. NEWSFLASH! Late yesterday, we set out food in dishes in a yard on Kenilworth, and this morning the food was gone, and the area covered with her fresh prints and the leash drag marks!!! We'll keep feeding and monitoring. And posting updates.
