Kind-hearted readers want to help Carver boy whose pet dog went missing

By Amanda Cripps, The Enterprise

A Weymouth woman has offered to contribute $500 toward a reward for the safe return of Bolo the pit bull, a Carver boy’s best buddy who went missing from his family’s fenced-in yard on July 10.
Several offers of help have been made to the Anderson family since their 6-month-old blue-nosed pit bull disappeared, ranging from replacement dogs and puppies to reward money and help hanging “missing dog” fliers.
Joseph Anderson, 8, who has Down syndrome, had shared his bed with the dog every night since the family received it six months ago.
Bolo went missing while Joseph was out crab fishing with his family. A party was being held a few doors down from the family’s home on Silva Street when they returned, and the fenced-in yard that Bolo had been playing in was empty.
Carver police were unable to investigate the incident due to a lack of evidence, according to Chief Michael Michsch.
The Anderson family has not received any leads on the current whereabouts of their dog, but are still hopeful for his safe return home.
“I’m trying to be hopeful,” said Tabitha Anderson, noting that though she fears Bolo is long gone, she is still searching.
“My child misses his dog,” she said. “My child is my top priority.”
At least two breeders have offered the family a free dog, and close to $1,200 in total has been raised for a reward so far.
“Everything that I feel can be done has been,” said Anderson.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Carver police at 508-866-2000.
