Photo submitted Debra Moore Staff Writer Jeff was so hard to catch that many had dubbed him "Houdini." Jeff, a chow-golden retriever mix, had wandered East Quincy since early last December. "He came with the first snow," said Dolores Satterlee, co-owner of Mill Creek Fish & Chips. That's when she first noticed the caramel-colored dog that would spend the next five months hanging around her East Quincy restaurant. Employees fed the dog, as did many of the customers. It took a couple of months, but Jeff finally let some of the staffpet him. He also played with the Satterlees' own dog. Jeff had escaped from a Mill Creek home soon after relocating from a ranch in Nevada. Folks including animal control personnel and sheriffs deputies tried to catch him without success. "They tried to trap him; they tried to dart him; but he would escape every time," Jeff, a chow-golden retriever mix, is staying at the Plumas County Animal Shelter until he is ready for adoption. Jeff roamed East Quincy for about five months, eluding those who tried to capture him, until he followed a young female dog into a fe6ce~ area. There is already a waiting list of folks who would like to adopt him. Photo by Debra Moore Satterlee said.

Bishop worked with a dog owner whose female was in heat. They led the pair into a fenced yard and Jeff was trapped. Bishop said that Jeff was not pleased, describing him as "not a happy camper" and adding that he wouldn't even look at her for a week. There is a waiting list of four who want to adopt Jeff, but first he must be acclimated. "We have to get him neutered and be able to get a collar and leash on him," Bishop said of the dog she estimates to be a little over a year old. Jeff has always been skittish and takes a while to warm up to people.. Bishop can't get close to him, but Gerald Nichol, who works at the shelter five days a week, has been able to pet him. While Jeff is going through doggie rehabilitation, the people of East Quincy miss him. "We loved him and took care of him," Andrews said.
