A large cash reward is promised for the return of a lost dog belonging to David Adorno, a prominent political activist in southwestern Queens.
The dog, "Sashi," only weighs a few pounds, is friendly and doesn't bite, said Adorno, who invites people to call him 24/7 at (347) 665-7087 or (917) 995-2605.
"We are heartbroken and hoping you can help us return her home," Adorno said in an ad promising a "large monetary reward" if Sashi is found and returned.
Sashi (pronounced "Sah-shee") is a small female dog with semi-long brown hair and white paws. She was last seen around 7 p.m. Aug. 3 at 90th Street and Atlantic Avenue in Woodhaven, wearing a pink collar with blue and green butterflies.
Adorno is a community activist and founder of the Queens Borough democratic Club (small d on purpose). He ran for the state Assembly in 2012 and has also been called upon by media such as Queens Public Television to provide political analysis.
