And Mylo? He looks unscathed and like he has a new friend!


Raisman says more info will come, but for now, she’s just enjoying having Mylo home safe. We’re so happy to hear that Mylo and Raisman have been reunited. Let this be a reminder that ANY dog can go missing – and we’re not all so lucky. Be sure to keep your dog’s microchip information up-to-date, and do your best to keep your pup calm come next Fourth of July.

Original Post:

The Fourth of July is the day of the year that the most dogs go missing. Everyone assumes it won’t happen to their dog, but you never know when your dog will get spooked and slip away. Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman is one of the many heartbroken dog parents who lost a dog on this holiday, and she’s still on the lookout. Her rescue dog named Mylo ran off after getting spooked by fireworks, and he hasn’t been seen since. Raisman is urging everyone near Boston to keep an eye out for him and to keep their own dogs safe during the Fourth of July.

A Celebration Gone Wrong

Mylo, who is a friend of Chris Evans’ dog Dodger, hates fireworks like most dogs do. So, when he heard the loud sounds during a Fourth of July celebration, he ran off with his leash still on. Raisman turned to social media to ask for help finding him.

“To my followers in the Seaport/Boston area…my dog Mylo was terrified of fireworks and ran off. He has a tag on and a leash. Please let me know if you see him. Thank you,” Raisman wrote on Instagram.

Instead of gathering a search party to look for the pup, Raisman encouraged followers to be passive. She wants them to keep an eye out for Mylo and report sightings, but not follow him or try to catch him. Dogs can act differently when on the run, so it’s better to be cautious.

“Please do not go out and actively search for Mylo. He is terrified, and the folks at Missing Dogs Mass advised that we don’t have anyone yelling his name or running around looking for him. I was told that scared dogs will make bad decisions if they are pressured, and that is the last thing that we want to have happen,” Raisman said.

The Search Continues

Raisman has continued to post daily updates on the situation, along with more photos of the pup. As of July 6th, Mylo is still missing. Animal organization Missing Dogs Mass is now offering support to the gymnast. They created lost dog flyers, along with a map of areas where Mylo could be.

“If anyone should see Mylo, please don’t post the location in social media comments, but message me directly at lynnraisman@gmail.com,” Raisman added.

Poor Mylo is likely extra scared and nervous. Anyone in the Boston/Seaport area should keep an eye out for the pup, but don’t chase him. He is a brown and white dog with bright blue eyes. He also weighs about 35 pounds. Hopefully, Raisman will be able to post good news about Mylo soon!
