The owners of a white dog that went missing in Santa Monica are seeking the community's help in finding him.
The white bichon and poodle mix named Mochi Bear was wearing a blue harness and dog tags when he escaped from his dog walker's van on Oct. 1 on Marguerita and 22nd St. He was last seen near the Brentwood Country Club area on Centinela and Carmelina avenues between Wilshire Boulevard and Montana Avenue.
Mochi Bear's owners request that anyone who sees him not chase him. Mochi is a rescue dog with severe spearation anxiety and is fearful of people. Instead, try to lure him in with food or call 310-699-7232, 310-922-5411 or 626-233-3203.
