Woman still searching for missing dog


STILLMAN VALLEY – A Stillman Valley woman is continuing to search for her service dog, nearly a year after it escaped during a crash.

On May 5, 2020, Marcia Kelly was in a car on Flagg and Skare roads in Rochelle when the vehicle was struck by another vehicle. She was injured in the crash, and her dog, Max, escaped from the vehicle.

Max is an American Bulldog, German Shepherd and Malamute mix. He was set to be trained as a service dog for Kelly, who is disabled.

She said someone at the scene of the crash said a woman had Max by his leash, but the search for him has proven unsuccessful. Max had a red leash with a green camouflage harness with Ogle County tags.

Anyone who has information about Max can contact Kelly at 773-540-7987 or Bart at 630-204-9000.
