Print This Post  Email This Post

BTB Contributor Jim Branson sends us word about a dog that was recently found at the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Center (at 19010 First Ave South), after eluding capture for “about four months.”

Jim says that the dog has been nicknamed “Striker” by folks at the center, who fed him three times a day.

He was finally captured when Dr. Leslie Kasper, Burien’s Director of Animal Care and Control, prescribed a safe sedative and they calmly caught him by the front doors of the facility. Romeo and Leo, two custodians who work there, also helped immensely.

And now, they’re looking for his Owner.

If this is your dog, or you think you know where he belongs, please call Burien Animal Care and Control at (206) 870-8471, or the Missing Pet Partnership at (253) 529-3999.

Here’s Jim’s note to us:

Do you recognize this dog?  He has been hanging around the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Center at 19010 First Ave South for about four months. People who work there saw him every day, but no one could catch him. The Missing Pet Partnership tried on several occasions to trap him, but he was too smart. The staff at WSCJTC fed him three times a day, and named him Striker.

Finally, MPP teamed up with Dr. Leslie Kasper, the Director of Burien Animal Care and Control.  She prescribed a safe sedative, and we were able to slip a snare over his head while he sat calmly by the front doors of the WSCJTC.  Romeo and Leo, two custodians who work there, also helped immensely.

We are hoping to find his owner.  We will require some proof of ownership.  If this is your dog, or if you think you know where he belongs, please call BACC at 206-870-8471, or MPP at 253-529-3999.

    Striker update: He is doing great! What a different dog he is today compared to the scared pup who entered the shelter last week! He loves to go on walks, enjoys his personalized attention and pets, and looks forward to his visits from his Justice Center “Family”.
    Striker is availible for adoption. He will be neutered and vaccinated prior to release. Adoption fee $100, microchip $35 additional.

      Striker has found a new home in Spokane Valley, WA. I saw him while I was attending the Telecommunicator 1 class at CJTC in April. I tried to pet him then, but he wouldn’t come near anybody while I was there.

      I was so surprised when my husband sent me the link to his website on Facebook. We decided pretty quickly he would be a good addition to our family.

      He has already started to adjust to his new home thanks to his mentor Annie. She is our older flat coated retriever (also adopted). He follows her everywhere and tries to do exactly what she is doing. It’s pretty funny to watch.

      We have 3 kids and a fenced in acre of land, so he has lots of attention and lots of room to run. He’s still kind of shy, but seems to be learning that it’s OK to have a family and we are happy to have him.
