UPDATE: After quite an adventure, traveling all the way to Union, Gamble is back home! He was found in the parking lot of a Petsmart by two shoppers. He had a sore paw and was going to local vet to be checked out.

ORIGINAL STORY: Puppy spotted Friday on Route 22 West, headed east toward Springfield. First seen Thursday on Route 22 at Westfield/Mountainside border.

Description: “He had a long tail that was curled up and over. He seemed pretty young - less than 4 months (?) - possible a labradoodle or something similar. Golden/pale in color with mid-length, slightly wavy hair and floppy ears.”

Several people tried to catch the puppy on Route 22 as it tried to cross over the barrier.
