Hey, you, in the St. Petersburg Cadillac: that dog needs meds

Lindsey ran off Sunday and was picked up by a driver.

Lindsey ran off Sunday and was picked up by a driver.

ST. PETERSBURG — Are you the stranger in the gold Cadillac who picked up a little black dog Sunday on First Avenue S and 37th Street in St. Petersburg? Her name is Lindsey and she needs her arthritis medicine.

Lindsey was set to be euthanized in a South Florida shelter a few months ago when St. Petersburg animal advocate Jennifer Roberts learned of her plight online and provided a foster home.

On Sunday, Roberts was outside with the dog when the dachshund-miniature pinscher mix found a gap below the fence and took off down an alley. Roberts learned that witnesses saw a driver stop and put Lindsey in his car.

The dog, about 10 years old, has a microchip but no one has reported finding her. Without twice-a-day arthritis medicine, she may become too impaired to even walk outside, Robert said.

"How do I lose a dog?" Roberts lamented Tuesday. "I find everybody else's dogs."

If the man in the gold Cadillac promises to give Lindsey a good home, Roberts is willing to talk. She can be reached at (727) 871-3424.
