Naperville Pooch Missing After Slipping Out of Collar

Naperville resident searching for her dog Tucker, a 13-pound, Chihuahua-miniature pinscher mix, who has been missing in Oak Lawn since 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 1.

Naperville resident Angel Szuta-Boerema is searching for her lost dog Tucker, who went missing in Oak Lawn yesterday evening.

At approximately 5 p.m. Wednesday, Szuta-Boerema's 13-pound Chihuahua-miniature pinscher mix slipped out of his harness and ran across Southwest Highway at 93rd Street in Oak Lawn.

“He looks like a miniature deer,” Angel said. “We live in Naperville, but he was staying with my husband’s grandmother in Oak Lawn. If he got lost in Naperville, he might have been able to find his way home.”

Szuta-Boerema said her family was visiting Great America and were on their way to see relatives in Antioch when they got the call that Tucker was lost.

Her husband’s grandmother, who lives near 93rd Street and Major in Oak Lawn, was taking care of Tucker when he got loose. 

Tucker is male, fixed, and is tan with a tint of light red, and has long legs and long ears. He is not chipped and does not have ID tags because he slipped out of his collar. Tucker is about 4 years old.

Tucker is a friendly dog, but if you see him, he might get nervous and run away. He’s probably scared so don’t chase him.

However, Angel said if you speak gently to him and stand still, or offer him some food, he may approach you.

Please report any sightings of Tucker to Angel at 708-655-3877 and call your local police if you see him. Angel can also be reached by email at M11angel@yahoo.com.

Let's keep an eye out for Tucker and help bring him home to his family. They miss him dearly. A reward is being offered.

Always chip your animal....there's no reason not too. I do hope for his safe return.
