Lisa, the hound and mini-pinscher mix, who was last seen at 7 a.m. Tuesday, July 3, was found dead in the woods by her home.
Lisa's owners, Mary, Mike, Zach, Nicole and Bear Jayes, reported she was very close to her home when she was discovered Thursday by an unknown person walking through the woods to get to Freddy Hill Farms in Towamencin.
The family believed Lisa was kicked in the head by the deer she was chasing.
The family said her body was already in the decomposition stage.
If it weren’t for her collar, we would have not been able to identify her," stated the family in an email to Lansdale Patch. "(We are) grateful to the woman who notified us so we no longer have to search for her. She is at peace and died doing the thing she loved most."
The family expressed their gratitude for the massive amount of support they had in their search for Lisa.
"We were so touched that people came to assist in our search at the drop of hat. Some of you on this email have never met us nor came in contact with Lisa, and you still did not hesitate to post her signs and look for her in your travels, search kennels etc. We are humbled by the overwhelming kindness we have receive and it will never be forgotten," said the statement.
The family said they are sad and heartbroken by the loss of their little girl.
"Anyone who has pets can certainly feel our pain. Her life was too short, but she was well loved and adored in our home," said the statement.
