A brown Cocker Spaniel/Shar Pei mix is missing after a 2:30 p.m. car accident, Animal Control Officer Jim Roy told Patch.

The accident occurred today in the vicinity of Long Meadow Road and Route 188. The dog's family are presently at a local hospital, he said.

The dog, whose name is Charlie, ran from the car through Avalon Farms, toward the Judd Hill Road/Christian Road area, Roy said. Charlie may have a head injury sustained from the accident, he said.

At around 7:47 p.m., Roy said the search was called off due to the weather and nightfall,

"I thank everyone during and after for their effort," he said.

Roy said the search will resume tomorrow. 

Anyone locating a dog matching this description is asked to call Middlebury Police Department's Animal Control by calling 203-577-4028.
