HOLMDEL, NJ – A dog from out of the country has been loose in Middletown and Hazlet since Saturday. The dog was last seen Thursday morning on Palmer Avenue in Hazlet. Being that the dog has absolutely no idea where it is, it is running frantically all over the place. The dog is capable of winding up in Holmdel.
The dog is not aggressive. However, it is terrified and will bite out of fear if it is cornered. If the dog is approached, it will run as fast as it can in any direction including areas of heavy traffic as we have seen on Highway 35 in Middletown.
