Passion 4 Paws Searching for Sarge


10-year-old Norwegian Elkhound mix Sarge went missing from Pond Road in Fletcher on the 4th of July. Sarge’s owners, Jessica Falkenberg and her husband Jaime have been relentlessly searching ever since.

Now with hunting season getting underway, local rescue group Passion 4 Paws and Sarge’s human parents would like the spread the message to hunters, hikers, foliage seekers and landowners to be on the lookout.

If you spot Sarge or another lost pet, they remind you not to shout or call for the dog, or approach. Lost dogs often are in survival mode and will be frightened easily.

They ask people who see Sarge or those who may have caught him on a trail or property cam to instead immediately call Falkenberg. Her number is 802.355.3394.
