Monte, a 14-year-old Chow that Jackie Seigal's family has owned since he was a pup, has been lost in Chesterfield since July 28. The family is hoping someone has seen their lost pet.
Jackie said the dog went missing a little over three weeks ago.
"He's arthritic, he's hard of hearing, but he can really act like a young dog if he sees a squirrel or a bird," Seigal said. She's afraid he may have taken off after something and not found his way home.
The family has posted posters around the Green Trails area of Chesterfield, including the .
"He's hesitant around strangers," she said. "He wouldn't go up and wag his tale and say, 'Take me home.' He's not the kind that would strike up a big friendship with another dog."
Seigal said Monte is collared, with his name on the collar, and chipped.
Anyone with information about Monte is asked to post a note here or call the Seigals at 314-579-0701.
