Sweet Bandit, a beautiful male Sheltie, went missing in Noblesville, Indiana, on May 6th of this year. His hu-mama, Elvina, was walking Bandit and Maggie, her other Sheltie, when they were attacked by a large dog. Both Bandit and Maggie ran away in fear, but after a 2-day search, Maggie was found and returned home.
Bandit, however, is still missing.
Throughout the summer, there were many reported Bandit “sightings“, but he has continued to elude those who are searching for him. Elvina has received calls from people who may have seen Bandit, from areas all over Hamilton County, including Noblesville and Fishers.
According to Elvina, although he seems to be seeking out people to help him, Bandit is very shy and afraid of strangers.
For that reason, if you see Bandit, Elvina asks that you please don’t chase or approach him. Try to follow him from a distance, and immediately call 317.502.3503 or 317.606.0012.
Elvina posts updates and pictures on her Facebook page, Bring Bandit Home. She continues to receive calls of possible Bandit sightings, and you can find out more by visiting her on Facebook.
Obviously, with winter approaching, Elvina is increasingly anxious about bringing Bandit home. She asks that you please keep an eye out for her beautiful dog. If you live in the Hamilton County area, why not save Elvina’s numbers in your phone, so you can reach her immediately if you believe you see Bandit? I’ve already saved 317.502.3503 in my phone, hoping that I get the chance to make a call that will help bring Bandit home.
Even if you do not live or travel in the Noblesville/Fishers/Carmel, Indiana area, you can help spread the word about beautiful Bandit. Please post a link to this blog post on your Facebook page and Twitter account. Do you use Pinterest? Go ahead and pin one of these gorgeous photos of Bandit and help get the word out.
