Osa (pronounced oh-sa), Osa Bear

HAPPY ENDING: Home, Safe n’ Sound!! Yippeee!!!  Her owners worked hard tracking her across highways and into the dark. But it worked… they used calm, happy voices and she showed herself just before they were going to go home for the night. Just Wonderful!! Thanks so much to all who cared and shared. (4.5.14 –

Breed or Mix: Husky/Shepherd/Lab

Sex: Female, Age: 2 years

Collar/Tags: Blue collar, rabies tag and ID tag with “Osa” on one side and phone #

Lost on: 04/05/2014

Area: Dawson Brook area Gravel Access Road, Williams Road, Ellershouse, West Hants, NS

Additional Notes: Osa is 60-65 lbs. She is coloured very similarly to a coyote but with a white chest/belly. Very thick coat that blends in well to the woods/fields. Curly tail like a husky but has floppy ears. She is very friendly! Really loves cheese and ground meat and has a soft spot for salami. She was last seen bolting after a deer near the gravel pit off the service road in Ellershouse, East of Windsor, NS. She has NEVER run off before and we fear she may be injured and hiding/confused/scared. There was a report of her chasing a deer across the 101 and people who pulled over chased her off. The deer was paralyzed (clearly not from a dog) but RCMP said no accident had been reported. It is unknown which direction the people who stopped chased her off to, but the tracks we have found in the surrounding area indicate that she crossed BACK over to the southwest side of the 101. We had been hiking all day up Dawson’s Brook and were on our return to the car parked near the junction of the service road and Williams Road. We live in Grand Pre. We left towels that smell like us, the car, and her at the place we last saw her and where our car was parked.
