A family in Tampa, Florida, is desperate to find their dog after saying it slipped out of its collar at Tampa International Airport. They have been looking for days, but still, there has not been any sign of the 6-year-old Chihuahua mix named Rocky.
Sasha Ortiz picked up Rocky at the American Airlines office Friday night after flying from Puerto Rico. As her parents were moving to the US, they had a company fly the dog up here. She walked out to load him in the car from the crate when she saw the poor pup squirming around, possibly nervous from the flight, and slipped out of his collar and ran off.
Rocky’s owner Sasha said, “We love him so much, and we miss him.”
Rocky was last seen at 11.30 p.m. on Friday right outside the Blue Arrivals lane near the American airline’s doors at the Tampa International Airport.
The family is trying to look for the dog. Sasha’s sister has been coming to the airport every day to look for him. They are also checking around local shelters but haven’t had any luck yet.
