3-legged dog lost in Reading

READING, Pa. -

The Berks County community has rallied together to help bring home a lost pit bull.

'Faith' went missing during an Animal Rescue League event on Sunday, when a tent fell on top of her and she ran off.

"Fay Fay!" cried out Brenda Krick, Faith's owner.

Krick has spent the last 24 hours panicked and beside herself. She's desperate to find her lost  3-year-old old pit bull.

"I think she's laying hurt because of her leg," said Krick.

Community members joined Krick Monday and searched high and low. Faith's front leg was amputated four months ago after she was hit by a car and left for dead in Reading. Now, the 3-legged, 40-pound pit is lost in the wet woods after running off Sunday morning during the ARL's 2nd annual Pit Bull-a-Palooza at the Brentwood Trailhead on Rt. 10.

 "They were getting her dressed with her outfit on. At that instant a gust of wind came up and one of the pop up tents blew over and landed on her," said Harry Brown, executive director of the ARL and owner of Faith.

 Faith was spooked and ran off. She was last seen near the railroad tracks behind Angelica Creek Park. Her tu tu and pink shirt were found deep in the brush, but she still may be wearing pearls and a tiara.

"My biggest fear was she would have gotten down into the park and got caught in the swamp," said Brown.

Brenda is hoping her little dog's face will be found and brought home safe.

"I feel like I'm walking right by her and she can't move," said Krick.

Faith gets scared very easily, but is friendly. If you spot her, call Harry Brown at 610-587-1930.
