She’s 12 years old (her age doesn't show!) and we love her very much.
Freddie, a 9-year-old very small Shih Tzu/Yorkie cross has gone missing from his Hudson home near Lower Whitlock and Brisbane area. He is brown with black highlights.

If found, please contact (450) 434-0537 or call The Journal at (450) 510-4007 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Reward offered.
