Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman is breathing a sigh of relief after finding her beloved dog, Mylo, who had gone missing for a week after running off during a weekend fireworks show in Boston.
On July 12, Raisman and Mylo were reunited after the dog had been found and returned to her.
On July 4, Raisman took to social media to reveal that Mylo was missing.
“My dog Mylo was terrified of fireworks and ran off,” she tweeted Saturday. “He has a tag on and a leash. Please let me know if you see him.”
She asked people not to call his name or chase him but to contact her via email.
“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,” she said in another tweet on Sunday.
She also posted pictures of Mylo, a brown dog weighing about 35 pounds with a white stripe on his face and blue eyes.
The organization Missing Dogs Mass is posting fliers in the city’s Seaport area.
Chris Evans, whose dog Dodger had a playdate with Mylo last year, got involved with the search, posting on his Instagram Story:
Raisman, a Needham, Massachusetts native, won six Olympic medals as captain for both the 2012 and 2016 U.S. women’s Olympic gymnastics teams. She is also a bestselling author and a survivor of sexual abuse.
