Finding Tessa Lehane: New Beagle Sightings in Brookline

Help Dennis Lehane find his dog, Tessa.

Dennis Lehane and his volunteer search partiers are regrouping their efforts towards Brookline Village.

There have been several possible sightings on Harvard & Aspinwall on December 30 and January 2 and near Griggs Park on January 5. According to the Finding Tessa Facebook page, the sighting at Griggs Park went unreported until late the next day because the caller did not know about the missing beagle until they saw the signs. The sighting at Griggs Park took place around 11:30 a.m..

Tessa went missing on Christmas Eve. Since then, the Facebook group formed to try and find the pup. Lehane has also issued an original reward; he’ll name a character in his next book after the person who finds the dog. Tessa, a black and tan beagle, is very friendly, micro-chipped, but was not wearing her ID tags at the time, according to reports. So far, there have been a few sightings, but they have turned out to be false alarms.

There have been several meet-up events in which volunteers have handed out and put up flyers. Patch will have information on any future canvassing efforts. There is also an advice page for Mr. Lehane on what tips worked or didn’t work from readers.

I thought I saw a beagle in a yard- on the corner of Rt 9 and Milton Rd - when I was on the shuttle bus going home from work today on Rt 9- I had never seen a dog in that yard before and it looked like a beagle- worth checking out- yard is on the Rt 9- Milton Rd Corner- left side as you turn onto Milton Rd from Rt 9 (not East Milton Rd- but Milton Rd)-

Just saw a beagle by the dumpster on the left of the Arts Building at the high school. The parking lot between the Unified Arts building and the T station. I stopped - and the dog ran behind the building.....I didn't chase - but wanted to let people to know to watch that area to see if it was her!

I keep hearing Lehane saying "lets keep things in perspective, its just a dog" in the boston globe bit on youtube. I hope Tessa is with folks that get it -- when you raise someone from babyhood to old age & that someone is missing or dead its tragic, a death in the family, like losing a child. Your heart still aches & burns with loss. "Just a dog".....God bless Tessa & all lost pets.
