Family dog escapes MAS kennel

Family dog escapes MAS kennel

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis Animal Services is looking for a dog that escaped from its custody more than one week ago.

MAS said Lanie, a family dog, was taken for routine quarantine after biting someone. However, while in an MAS truck, Lanie escaped her kennel.

Lanie's owners said she has broken out of their kennel before, but before MAS took her, the owners were forced to remove her collar to avoid risk of choking while in the cage. They claim they weren't notified until the next day that she was missing. The owners also said they were not told by MAS that one of their options was to take her to the vet themselves instead of being taken by truck to be quarantined.

MAS shared Lanie's photo across social media since she escaped while in the group's custody.

From MAS:

Memphis Police Department has also been tasked with searching for Lanie. The department canvassed the area near Raleigh LaGrange where MAS said Lanie escaped.

Call MAS at (901) 636-7297 if you see Lanie.
