NEWPORT — Cake, a deaf and blind German shepherd from Newport, has gone missing.
His owner Kelly Walker and Cake were out walking near Big Creek Park on Thursday evening when the dog went missing.
The dog was previously shot in the head and dumped in the desert. Walker rescued Cake several years ago, and the pair now live in Newport.
A team of people and their search dogs from Adventurous K9, a local dog service, are currently out looking for Cake.
He was spotted near Big Creek Park Thursday about 10:45 p.m.
“He has partial hearing in one ear and would come if called, but he can’t tell what direction sound is coming from,” Walker said.
Cake typically responds to a whistle that Walker uses to get his attention when they’re out walking.
