Some residents of Needham started noticing extra dog poop in their yard. Surprised and curious about the extra poop, they decided to set up a closed circuit TV camera to find out who was messing their yard. With the help of the camera, they discovered that the poop came from a White Basenji mix who used to frequent their yard.
Initially, the residents assumed the canine belonged to someone in the neighborhood who allowed their dog to roam around. Sometimes, they even left food out for the dog. After some time, however, they decided that they needed to catch the dog.
The Needham residents tried capturing the dog by setting up a trap, which failed to work in the end. The dog, however, remained a frequent visitor to their yard.
At some point, a Needham resident reached to Missing Dogs Massachusetts after seeing a photo of Bay on a Needham Community page. However, after contacting the resident, Matthew of Missing Dogs of Massachusetts discovered that the dog in question was not Bay.
After being contacted by the residents on whose yard a stray dog was showing up frequently, Matthew and another volunteer decided to set up another trap. This time, Bay was caught in the trap early on Tuesday morning, April 6th, 2021, as she went into the yard for a free meal.
