NEWARK, Md.- One of the more than 300 rescued dogs from a suspected Wicomico County puppy mill is missing from her new home.  Rogue was brought home by Bethany Warford of Newark, Md. last Wednesday and unfortunately, the dog ran away later that evening.

Warford said the images of the rescued puppies prompted her to want to give one of the dogs a better life.

"Wednesday morning, my mom was like, 'I'll give you money for a dog if you want to go get one.'  So I was really excited because two of our older dogs had passed away to health issues recently, so I was happy to go and get another dog," Warford told WBOC on Wednesday.

Warford said she brought home the black Pomeranian, named Rogue, last Wednesday.  Rogue was still adjusting to her new life after being rescued from a home on Cooper Road in Eden, Md. in early April.

"She was falling asleep on the couch sitting up because she was too scared to lay down.  It was really sad," Warford said.  "So she finally got a little more comfortable and she laid down.  I went to work.  I came back and my mom and my mom's friend said that she had run away.

Barely in her new home for a few hours and Rogue was on her own in Newark.  Warford said the last place she and her family saw Rogue was behind the Worcester County Development Center on Newark Road.  She has placed trail cameras and a trap behind the center, but the food inside the trap has gone untouched.  There has been no sign on Rogue for a week, but Warford is still hopeful that someone will help her find her pup in need.

"She was spayed recently so she did still have stitches on her belly.  And they have me antibiotics at animal control to give her twice a day.  So, she's been without those for a week now," said Warford.

Warford said if you spot Rogue, do not approach her because she is still skittish and will run from people.  Instead, you are asked to call Worcester County Animal Control at (410) 632-1340.

     It's hard to believe Pine Street in Cambridge was once piled with burnt rock and debris.

    The Cambridge Race Riots of 1967 left 17 buildings destroyed and a community - scarred. Herschel Johnson was in his late twenties at the time and lived down the street.
