AL Marine Corps vet still searching for missing support dog
BALDWIN CO., AL (WSFA) - It's been almost three weeks since Simon Flarity's support dog Tito disappeared after being scared by a neighbor's fireworks.
On July Fourth, Flarity and Tito spent a day boating on the water, according to WALA. They had just got back to the dock when a sudden firework from a neighbor's yard sent Tito running. Flarity hasn't been able to find him since.
Tito is described as being white and gray with large ears, one of which that is beginning to droop. He was last seen wearing a black nylon collar with tags. He is also microchipped.
According to a support Facebook page, Finding Tito, Flarity has had a number of sending photos to him of dogs that look similar to Tito. While these dogs have not turned out to be his companion, he encourages others to continue sending photos.
Other organizations have also joined in to find Tito. According to WKRG, Flarity was joined in the search by a member of the Pet Search and Rescue Investigations based out of California.
So far, they've searched areas in Baldwin County and plan to search areas in Foley, Magnolia Springs and Summerdale on Monday.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Flarity directly on his cell phone at 251-214-5173. A $1,000 cash reward is also being offered for his return.
