If you have ever been to the Westside Pet Clinic on Wilshire Boulevard in Santa Monica, a four-legged, tail-wagging door greeter named Lucy most likely welcomed you. Lucy is the Clinic’s Medical Director, Dr. Antje Hinz’s, working grey pit-bull terrier whose job is to meet and greet all visitors, and to help calm anxious pets and their owners.

On Sept. 7, 2015 at 4 p.m., while Hinz was in Germany, Lucy went missing from her pet-sitters residence at 1158 Grant Ave. in Venice. The last known sighting of Lucy was at Pen Mar Golf Course where, when cornered, she slipped out from under a fence.

Scores of community volunteers have posted lost dog posters and continue to scour the neighborhood, but they have not yet been able to find Lucy. Hinz hopes that the help from social media will be Lucy’s ticket home, and back to work.

The Westside Pet Clinic is seeking the help of the public in bringing home their beloved door greeter and best friend. The Amanda Foundation has put up a generous $1,000 reward for Lucy’s safe return.

Anyone with information about Lucy’s whereabouts can contact search coordinator Tracy Jones at 1-805-844-1400.
