Do you remember the 2 loyal tsunami dogs? We know that Mei-chan was found by her owner, but Lee-chan was still missing. The owner is still looking for Lee-chan. Maybe you thought they were both rescued, because of “bad” reporting on the part of CNN. Maybe you thought they both were rescued because of multiple claims based on an individual. All were wrong. Had those claims NOT been said, people would have kept looking for Lee-chan. In fact, another photo has turned up about her. She was not standing on the day the Fuji-TV video was made, but she was standing the next day. She was photographed by a building. If she was there, and people were still looking for her, then maybe she would have been rescued at that time. But, that did not happen. If you can help, or remember anything about seeing Lee-chan or another dog that looked very much like Lee-chan in a video or photo of the Japanese Earthquake or Tsunami survivors, please contact the person in the link below. The owner of Lee-chan has not given up. Please, if you remember anything, contact her. Thank you.

Their real owner said “This dog of the photo is Lee!”

Actually, PETA Asia, HSI, Kinship Circle, other foreign cameramen, human rescuers had been in Sendai at that time, but I don’t know other foreign people.
If you know, please tell them this info & please tell me.
I think that there is possibility Lee-chan was got by overseas people, and she was adopted to far from Sendai Japan, but those rescuers might believed in false rescue report and they have not look for the real owner.
Pattern on Mei-chan (brown tan dog) is so characteristic, but there are many dogs like Lee-chan (white injured dog).
