GROVE CITY —
Where is Saga?
If you live in the Grove City area, you have probably seen signs, posters and classified ads about a missing American bulldog.
The Trezona family pet disappeared Sept. 20 from her kennel but the door was not open, there were no holes under or around the kennel for her to escape and the kennel was intact.
"I had put her outside in her kennel at 9 a.m. because it was a beautiful day and we had work and activities for the day," Lisa Trezona wrote on the Facebook page Please Help Saga Return Home Butler, PA "Well once we returned Saga was gone. We talked to all the neighbors and no one saw her. We called all local police, shelters and rescues...posted flyers everywhere...but so far there has not been one confirmed sighting of her. We have searched roads we didn't even know existed...ditches and woods...NOTHING...we know that someone has to know something."
Her family desperately wants the brindle and white female American bulldog returned to their Barkeyville Road home, no questions asked. They are offering a $1,000 reward.
Saga was born in Norway and it took a year for her to come to live with Brian, Lisa, Kendra and Trey Trezona in what they thought was a safe place to care for their five American bulldogs.
All daughter Kendra wanted for her September birthday was for Saga to come home.
Lisa said as she was putting her daughter to bed that night, Kendra told her she had a "nice birthday but the only bad thing was Saga didn't make it home."
Unbelievably, the heartbroken family is getting prank calls telling them someone is going to kill their dog or that they will never see her again.
According to the Facebook page, there have been sightings of a dog matching Saga's description near the railroad tracks along Erie Street in Grove City, as well as in Boyers and Clarion areas.
"Saga is a friendly dog who likes to be with people and other animals. However, she may be skittish and a bit scared. Saga was wearing a 2-inch black collar when she went missing," Lisa wrote, noting the dog doesn't have tags but does have a microchip.
Mrs. Trezona said they will never let any of their dogs out of their sight again.
There have been at least two other American bulldogs reported missing within a 50-mile radius of the Grove City area -- near Cambridge Springs and Sharon -- in the last few weeks and there has not been one sighting, she noted.
