NORFOLK, Va. — A dog that was adopted from the Norfolk SPCA is missing, and the shelter is asking for the public's help in reuniting her with her family.

Corinne, a 5-year-old female Foxhound, was adopted from the shelter on November 2, 2018, to a family residing in Norfolk. Now named Korra, went missing on June 22 of this year.

At the time of publication, Korra, who is 7 years old and is dependent on thyroid medication, has been missing for 18 days.

The shelter says Korra escaped from an enclosed yard near Robin Hood Road and Azalea Garden Road in Norfolk. As alumni from the Norfolk SPCA, she is microchipped and spayed.

Korra has thyroid complications and requires medication to maintain her health and comfort. The shelter describes her as extremely friendly and says she knows many basic obedience commands.

In August 2018, Korra was transferred to the Norfolk SPCA from the Gloucester-Matthews Humane Society. She was featured on the Animal Planet's 2018 Dog Bowl and was a local star.

Because the Norfolk SPCA CARE Team is invested in all animals' well-being, they are looking to reunite Korra to her family immediately.

The shelter is offering a reward for Korra's safe return or any information on where she might be. You can remain completely anonymous when sending in your tip or returning Korra to the shelter.

"Korra can be returned to the Norfolk SPCA seven days a week, between 8 a.m. -5 p.m. Or, a shelter representative can pick her up from your home at any time," said Kimberly Sherlaw, Executive Director of the Norfolk SPCA.

Sherlaw is hopeful that Korra will be found.

"Korra may be cared for by a person or family who does not know she has a loving family who misses her and that she needs her medication. Citizens can mistakenly re-home dogs, and it is essential that if you find a dog or lost/stray pet, you report to your local animal shelters, both private and public. We welcome the public to always bring the animal to the Norfolk SPCA (living or deceased) to scan for a microchip, and we will help to reunite the pet with their owners," Sherlaw said.

If you know where Korra may be, you are asked to contact Alyssa DeSena, Admissions Coordinator of the Norfolk SPCA, by calling 757-622-3319 ext. 105 or by emailing
