Patchogue woman’s Yorkie ‘Isis’ missing since June 15

Judy Alston of Patchogue Village didn’t name her little Yorkie Isis because she’s a terrorist sympathizer.

She named her the dog Isis after the DC Comics female superhero dating to 1975 — after losing her sister in 2009.

Now she has lost her dog, which was possibly stolen.

“My sister was murdered in 2009, and her birthday is October 21,” Alston explained. “Later I was at a pet store and this Yorkie’s birthday was October 21, so I just had to have her. Isis and I were in the backyard like we do every morning having breakfast and Isis roams the yard. When I got ready to go in I called her but got no answer.

“I immediately got worried because she always comes in on the first call.”

That was June 15 on Baker Street, and Isis hasn’t been seen since.

“I went looking for her and my neighbor said she saw a woman in a black car pick up Isis, put her in her car and drive away,” Alston said.

“We named her Isis after the superhero,” she said “because my family was having a really tough time after my sister’s death. Isis brought a lot of joy to us the first time we laid eyes on her, so we called her Isis the superhero.”

Alston is offering a cash reward for the return of her dog.

Anyone with information is being asked to call (631) 578-7977.
