Gypsy, the Shiba Inu missing from Greendale is found

GREENDALE (WITI) — FOX6 News has learned that Gypsy, a young female Shiba Inu that went missing from the Village of Greendale back on January 24th has been found!

The Midwest Shiba Inu Rescue on Facebook confirmed on Tuesday, February 4th Gypsy has been found.

She was taken to the vet for a full examination, where it was determined she shows pain, but the vet believes this is from being in the extreme cold for so long, and being on the run for so long.

The vet believes Gypsy may have over-worked muscles, and her blood work shows she is suffering from a lack of nutrition.

In a few days, the vet will be able to determine whether Gypsy suffered any frostbite to her paws -- as they may start to blister or peel.

Gypsy is on anti-inflammatory medication, a bland diet and rest -- which she deserves after her ordeal!

Gypsy went missing near Grange and Northway in Greendale. She was missing for 11 days.

“She was seen in the woods off 76th and Grange on Friday (January 24th). Nothing Saturday or Sunday (January 25th and 26th). Then Monday (January 27th), I got a call from MADACC that somebody had spotted her off 68th and Armour, off of Layton,” Gypsy’s owner, Amber Hill said.

On Tuesday morning, January 28th, the dog was spotted again near 72nd and Armour just north of Layton.

Gypsy weighs less than 20 pounds and has short, black and white fur. There was a great deal of concern because while Gypsy was gone, it was bitterly cold outside.

The Midwest Shiba Inu Rescue posted this message on Facebook on February 4th: "Thank you is simply not enough to express our gratitude to her angels who searched countless hours for her, and we are forever grateful for your help in saving a life!"
