Missing Beagle Spotted in Simsbury

Have you seen Jilly? She's been spotted in Simsbury and Granby near the bike trail.

A local family is still searching for an adopted Beagle that went missing on Sept. 11 and there have been multiple sightings recently.

Jilly was adopted from an Ohio dog rescue agency in early September and has been missing since just four days after she came to her new home in Simsbury. Jilly was last seen on Monday, October 15 in the area of Tuller Circle, according to her owners.

The family has been told of sightings as far south as Abigails Wine Bar & Grille and as far north as Granby near the Farmington Valley Greenway.

Jilly was most likely abused before she was adopted and seems to be very afraid of people, according to her owners. Those who have seen Jilly said she appears to be very skinny and very dirty.

If you happen to spot Jilly wandering around, contact Chris at 860 559 9657 or Simsbury Animal Control at (860) 658-3110.

I think it is a matter of time before someone catches up with her, keeping my fingers crossed.

Rebecca, you're welcome. I'm willing to help out anyone that goes to this extent of looking for their pet. I think when not if you get a hold of her you guys should change her name to Whodini....lol this is just crazy. But at least if these sightings are her, she's looking healthy, which means someone is feeding her and giving her water. I think me and a friend will go back out in that area again, possiblt tomorrow and on the weekend.

Was Jilly ever found? I have been working with the group in Farmington looking for Sassy and thought about Jilly.. Rycarjam@gmail.com

Thanks for asking, but no she was never found. Between Dec 2012 & Jan 2013, 4 beagles in Granby had been caught, plus one in Suffield and one in Southwick. None of them were "Jilly" . Once the first snow came in mid-december, all sightings of her ceased.
