Have You Seen This Dog?

Weezy is a red-nose pit bull who's been missing since Monday. Help bring this family member home.

One Bristol family is incomplete at the moment, and is asking for your help to make it whole again.

On Monday afternoon, Weezy, a beloved red-nose pitbull, disappeared from his yard on Jameson Drive, in the area of Metacom Avenue near the Bristol/Warren line.

Weezy, a 52-pound male, is brown with a white star on his chest. The family describes Weezy as a "very friendly dog" and reports he is up-to-date on his shots.

Weezy disappeared around 3 p.m. Monday and hasn't been seen since. Family members said they do not believe the dog ran away but that he was stolen from the yard. The family is offering a $500 reward for Weezy or information that leads to his return.

If you see any dog that resembles Weezy or have any information as to his whereabouts, email Sharon at sharonxobeth@yahoo.com or add any tips to the comments section below.

Weezy is a family pet and the owners describe him as friendly, and I believe them! That means they have taken responsibility for training their Pitbull just like any other owner of any breed does. Before Pitbulls were thought of as vicious it was the Doberman then the Rottweiler. All dogs are the product of thier owners training. Their are no bad dogs only bad owners! I hope you find your handsome Weezy, he looks like a sweetie!!

Thank you for defending my weezy. He is such a sweetie and I have done everything in my power to raise an amazing obedient dog.

Let's please keep in mind this is a family pet we are talking about. Pitbulls get an undeservedly bad reputation because of some bad owners. Any breed of dog can be trained to be a vicious attack dog, and any breed — including pitbulls — can be trained to be a gentle family pet. Let's not make unfair assumptions about one family of dog owners because others are irresponsible with their dogs.

I'm so happy to know how well you think you know my dog. And how your so "sure" that he is one second away from attacking something. Just because he is a pit bull does not mean a thing. A small dog could be just as dangerous. You are just an arrogant person who needs to step off their pedastel and stop judging helpless animals.

For uneducated people as seen above, not giving pitbulls a chance. How dare you write something so obscene about a dog whom you don't know. I happen to own a pitbull myself and he is loving and loyal, and has never been aggressive toward any child, person or animal for that matter. And I also happen to know many other pitbulls who are just like mine. Unfortunately, the biggest problem with aggressive pitbulls are their owners, who raise them to be this way. I am completely offended and appalled by such an uneducated comment. Which should be deleted from Patch!

So glad, dogs are like our children, especially when the children leave the nest, good for you ;-}

So happy Weezy is home with his family.
