'Terrified' Dog Missing After Merrimack Car Crash That Killed Owner
UPDATE: Daisy died during the crash, according to Granite State Dog Recovery.
The dog of a Nashua woman who died during a Tuesday crash also was in the car and now is missing.
Daisy is a 3-year-old puggle weighing 15 pounds. Granite State Dog Recovery says Daisy should be wearing a collar. She is microchipped.
On Tuesday troopers from the New Hampshire State Police Troop B Barracks in Bedford, along with the Merrimack Police and Fire Department responded to the crash on the F.E. Everett Turnpike northbound Exit 10 off-ramp.
The crash investigation revealed that a 2009 Toyota Camry being driven by Lindsey Catalino, 25, of Nashua, was traveling northbound when she lost control before hitting a light post and a tree off the right side of the roadway. Catalino was pronounced dead at the scene.
On Monday, Catalino set up a GoFundMe page for Daisy, whom Catalino wrote has Lyme disease and needs treatment.
"Daisy got diagnosed with Lyme's disease, she needs more tests and her medication is very expensive," Catalino wrote. "I can't bring her in for another visit for more blood work if I can't pay for her first visit, and that is if I can get her medication she will have to take it for a month and after will need to go back to the vet for more blood work to see if it's gone."
Catalino wrote that Daisy is an emotional support dog that helps out in a dementia unit.
"Daisy is my life. She's the best dog I've had. She's an ESA dog. I bring her to the Dementia Unit and she makes the elderly clients so happy!"
GSDR is asking anyone who sees Daisy not to chase her as she is likely "terrified."
