Monk is safe. Using Facebook and cross-posting, he was spotted 3 days in a row by Foeste Nursery. Today, a girl kept him in sight as they called me. By the time I got there, he had gone to the back. She had to leave but showed me where he had been behind the Senior Center. I left an open crate with food (he likes crates), then started walking and calling his name. Came to a muddy track - looked down and saw paw prints going the opposite way. Noticed a diversion channel. Walked down there - saw deer prints - looked up and there was Monk, at the bridge over the channel at Lombardo. I kept calling his name, he started walking through the channel away from me under the bridge. I walked above him, slowly, kept calling, got to the other side of the road and saw him at the edge of the grass and field. He was ready to run; I called again; he stopped and looked. I turned sideways, slowly bent down in a squat, opened my arms, called, and this feral scared dog came running to me, putting his head right in my hands as I slipped the leash over his head. He was done running - he didn't want to walk - I had to carry him back to the crate and let me rest before I took him to the car.
Monk is no longer up for adoption. Monk is a Silverwalk mascot. I will still work with him per a rescue friend's suggestions but no one else. He has earned his home and he has made it clear where his home is. I am not adopting him - Silverwalk Hounds is his home.
