HANCOCK, Maine — The owners of two missing Doberman pinschers are looking for help in finding their pets.
The dogs, a black male and a young brown female, have been missing from their owners’ Austin Road home since Saturday, Jan. 31, owner Adrianne Graves said Monday.
Graves said the animals were recorded last week by an unmanned hunting camera that had been set up in the woods off Route 182. Game wardens with the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife went to the Graves home last weekend to tell them the animals had been spotted, she said.
“They have been seen,” Graves said. “Unfortunately, we haven’t recovered them yet.”
The male, which is about 3½ years old, is wearing a collar, but the female, which is only 10 months old, is not, she said. The dogs are believed to be staying together.
“We know our animals very well and they are very smart, too smart to stay out in the cold for too long,” Graves wrote in an e-mail. “We have come to the conclusion that someone has them and doesn’t know how to contact us or has at least seen them around.”
Anyone who has seen the animals or who may know where they are is asked to contact the Graves family at 669-4677 or the local animal control officer at 422-3393.
