Happy ending for missing dog

The North­east Times has helped re­unite a lost dog with his Somer­ton home.

On Sat­urday, Somer­ton Civic As­so­ci­ation zon­ing chair­man Seth Ka­plan no­ti­fied the Times that someone had re­turned his way­ward pit bull/lab mix named “Champ” after see­ing the pooch’s photo in May 22 edi­tions of the news­pa­per.

Champ, an obed­i­ence school gradu­ate as evid­enced by the mor­tar­board cap worn in his mug shot, non­ethe­less ran from his own­ers in the area of Loes­che Ele­ment­ary School earli­er this month. Ka­plan sought help from folks in his civic as­so­ci­ation and from the Times in find­ing the can­ine.

It turned out that a loc­al wo­man spot­ted the wan­der­ing Champ and took him as a foster pet in hopes of find­ing his right­ful own­ers.  She saw the art­icle in the pa­per and called Ka­plan, he said. ••
