Happy Ending For MoCo Native Scott Van Pelt and His Dog, Redd

by MCS Staff

Almost 1 million people have seen the original tweet by MoCo native and ESPN SportsCenter host Scott Van Pelt, asking for help after his dog, Redd, got out of a doggy daycare on Friday afternoon in Rockville/North Bethesda. “Heads up to anyone in Rockville, Md. area: Redd somehow got out of the Dogtopia on Wyaconda Rd. Rhodesian Ridgeback, about 65 pounds. He’s chipped. White front left paw and white markings on chest Please keep an eye out or an ear if you hear of anyone who might have found a puppy”

At 10:37pm, after hundreds of retweets and his tweet being seen by hundreds of thousands of people, Van Pelt announced that Redd was found. “Oh my goodness, they found him!!!! An army of people apparently on the case. I can’t even begin to connect the dots. I’m sitting here in tears on a plane headed home and Redd is gonna be there to greet me. I can’t believe it & I can’t thank everyone enough for their kindness.”

A happy ending for the Sherwood High School graduate who has gone on to find success in the world of sports. Van Pelt is a Brookeville native. He attended Flower Valley Elementary School in Rockville. He graduated from Sherwood High School in Sandy Spring, and then from the University of Maryland in 1988 where he studied radio/television and film.
