HAPPY ENDING: Home, Safe n' Sound: Lost Dog: Wentwoth Road, Sweets Corner, Hants Co., NS — Shiba Inu, Male, 13 — "Tucker"



HAPPY ENDING: Home, Safe and Sound!! Yeah!!! From the Owners: “Tucker’s big adventure is over! After a few almost had-him’s yesterday, we caught him in a field in Brooklyn. He seemed to want to be around us, but was hesitant to get too close at first, but when we finally got him, he just relaxed and seemed to say, What took you so long! Heartfelt thanks to everyone for their kind help and support!”  The number of reported sightings were wonderful and what lead to Tucker getting home safely.  Awesome folks… always report the sighting of a roaming dog.  Thanks everyone for caring and sharing Tuckers’ info.  Now lets hope his need to roam is over and he just enjoys his retirement at home.  Yippee!! (3.21.12 – 3.30.12)


UPDATE: 3.27.12 – SIGHTED: From the Owners: “Tucker was sighted just recently heading out the 215 towards the Hants Shore. He appears to have changed areas & is now further from home.A lady out there sat outside with a treat quietly waiting for him to come to her. She almost had him but he ran off again. He is very frightened.”  PLEASE DO NOT APPROACH, Call Owners Immediately if Sighted: 902-798-8036


UPDATE: 3.26.12 – SIGHTED: From the Owners: “Tucker was spotted on the Brooklyn bridge again about an hour ago (~11:30 am Monday, 3.26.12). He was creating a bit of a traffic hazard as he was in the middle of the road. Someone called the police. Also someone tried to catch him and he ran off again. … He will run if people try to catch him. Loud voices tend to scare him and he is afraid of men with booming voices.”


UPDATE: 3.25.12 – SIGHTED:  Friday, 3.23.12,  between 6:30-7:30 on the road that runs from Brooklyn to Windsor. It was on the bridge, (the bridge she is referring to is only 1/2 mile down the road from sweets corner, towards brooklyn [crosses the river]), walking on side of road and heading toward Brooklyn. It was wearing a collar. Did not appear injured.

    Gayle Eileen Tried to pick up Tucker this morning in Union Corner at 10:40, but he didn’t want to get close. I didn’t know his name until now, wish I had some treats in my car for him 🙁
