A Milpitas family is desperately searching for their beloved dog, Monty Moscow, who has been missing for almost a month.
Monty Moscow is a 2- to 3-year-old Sheltie. He was lost on Mimnot Drive in Milpitas on Aug. 26 but was spotted about a week ago near Dixon Landing Road and Washington Drive, his owner, Albert Quirky of Milpitas said in an email to Patch.
Monty Moscow is skittish, which may be the reason why he hasn't made it home yet. Quirky said his dog is gentle and shy, and it's probably best to lure him into an enclosed area—such as a backyard—with food or treats.
"Please do not chase," Quirky requested. "He may be hiding in bushes, under cars or in people's backyards."
Monty Moscow was adopted, which is why his family isn't quite sure of his age.
Shelties, the nickname for Shetland Sheepdogs, are small to mid-sized herding dogs with fluffy fur. Monty Moscow has golden-sable fur.
"Please help us bring him home," Quirky said.
