Not Again, Dog-Walking App Loses Another Dog, Says Harlem Dog Owner

May 14, 2018

NY Post reports that yet another city doggie was lost by the “Uber for dog-walking” app last week.

Maura Brannigan of Harlem tweeted Friday that her 3-year-old dog, Teddy, went missing during a walk with a Wag worker.

“PLEASE HELP/RT: @WagWalking lost our 3yo German Shepherd/Basset Hound mix during a walk,” the distraught owner wrote on Friday, May 11. “Responds to Teddy. Very sweet but very scared/anxious. Please help us.”

The dog wandered around overnight before one of Brannigan’s neighbors discovered the pooch outside their building the next morning — 20 blocks from where his walker lost him.

“WE FOUND HIM,” Brannigan tweeted Saturday. “Teddy found his way 20 blocks overnight and was waiting right outside our building door when a neighbor recognized him and took him in. A true miracle.”

Teddy was home recovering Sunday, Brannigan told The Post.

Wag spokeswoman Caroline Hartman said the company posted lost-dog fliers, hired an external search team, informed local authorities and sent out a doggie Amber alert after learning Teddy got loose.
