    Do we know his “previous” name ? That might help.

    I saw him yesterday, did not see this until after the fact. I live on Grandview Dr off Spring. Had him in my backyard. He wad gone down the back bank before I could get to him. Looks like he is not leaving the area.

    I think I saw this little fellow a couple of days ago on Aberdeen crt . I knew he was lost , he wouldn’t come to me and ran off . I searched a few streets but didn’t see him …..I will post on my facebook for neighbors to watch out for him . Good luck

      Sometimes that may be true, but I believe Buster is from Montreal so let’s hope not. ;^) Ann Morrison

    Saw Buster on Sunday on Granview at 2ish I was unable to catch him. He wasnt hurt just sauntering along heading towards Spring.

    Has Buster been found yet??

      “Buster” is his original name but he does not recognize that as he was not given much human attention in his life. He is still out there in relatively the same neighbourhood. 3 sitings today Thursday June 13 – Albyn st, Patterson & Walters St. in Woodlawn area.

  8. Mary submitted this update

    Have you thought of setting up a live trap to catch him? If he is shy of people it might be a good idea.

    Sat June 15 – 2 sitings: approx 8:30 am on LaPierre & Steven Harris heading toward Cranberry. Then approx 8:45pm on Lucien heading toward Mount Edward Rd. Please keep the faith & the word moving. He’s so close to home but just doesn’t know it!

    Thought I saw him on Mount Edward Road close to Stewart Harris around 8:00 pm. A car stopped by him and the people were getting out. Turned around and went back and the car was gone and didn’t see the dog. Thinking the may have gotten him. Has he been found?

    I believe I saw him this morning on Caldwell Rd down near the military beach heading towards Hynes Rd. In my mirror I did see him go into the bushes on the side of the road but when I turned around and went back I didn’t see him.

    My daughter said she saw him on Ellenvale. not knowing the story she tried to catch him, last seen heading towards Morash park Guysborough ave area

    He was definitely in a backyard on Woodlawn Road across from the church and duck pond at 5:45. My neighbour called to him and he looked up but kept going. So unlikely he is the one spotted on Caldwell.

    about 1 hour ago I saw a dog that looked like his running on Woodlawn road just past the store Not sure it was him but called the owner. Hope they find him soon. Will keep an eye out if I see him again I will try to get him in the car
