Bulldog found safe after it escaped from Greendale home

Help find Meatball the puppy in Lawrenceburg

LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. (FOX19) - A Lawrenceburg woman and her family are relieved after their bulldog was found Sunday afternoon.

Kylie West’s dog Meatball was found Sunday afternoon after Meatball escaped from her home in Greendale Thursday.

West says her bulldog is home safe and will be taken to the veterinarian Monday.

When Meatball went missing, the West’s family put the word out online. Their friends shared a Facebook post and eventually West was told a local officer spotted the dog, picked her up and dropped her off at PAWS of Dearborn County late Thursday.

The next day, West went to the shelter to bring Meatball home, but she wasn’t there to greet her.

“Just heartbroken. There was no answer," she said.

The rescue had no official record of her being dropped off, but they did confirm they have surveillance video of Meatball being taken by two people who approached this gated area after hours.

After Meatball went missing, PAWS representatives said people should not drop off animals within their gates during non-operating hours.
