2-year-old white and gray pit bull Luna got scared and ran away after the actor was hit by a car near the intersection of Virginia Avenue and Rock Creek Parkway.
WASHINGTON — A cast member from the musical Hamilton searches for his dog in DC after he escaped in a car accident on Saturday.
Hamilton’s teammate Trevor Miles said another teammate was walking his 2-year-old white and gray pit bull Luna when he was hit by a driver near the intersection of Virginia Avenue and Rock Creek Parkway around 5 p.m.
The driver injured Miles’ teammate. Fortunately, he said the man was finally released from the hospital. However, Miles said Luna got scared and ran from the scene.
Miles, who is in DC for Hamilton’s stay at the Kennedy Center, said he got Luna during the pandemic. He said he bonded with his dog in an instant.
“She exhibits such a sense of camaraderie and partnership and I really appreciate that,” Miles said.
Miles added that having a companion by your side, like Luna, is helpful when traveling on the road.
“I haven’t had a home for the past two years and it reminded me how important home is and Luna has been that home to me because I don’t have one,” he said. he declares. “So it’s completely unimaginable to do this without her.”
Miles said Luna was last seen near George Washington University Hospital. He said he also received a tip recently that Luna was also taken in by three girls around the Milken Public Health building on the GW campus.
Miles asks for any available information that might be there.
“There was a lot of support, but unfortunately not a lot of information,” Miles said.
If you know where Luna is or who may have her, you are welcome to contact Miles at [email protected]
Miles said Luna was extremely friendly, but also maybe a little scared and nervous.
