Additional Notes: A HUGE Thank You goes out to the Halifax RCMP for going above and beyond (Brrr…) to save this sweet senior dog: Shortly after midnight on February 10, 2016, Halifax District RCMP responded to a call from a concerned citizen regarding a distressed dog on Highway 7, Lake Echo.

…officers were able to locate a small dog in a partially frozen pond. The dog would not move and it was unclear if the dog was injured or stuck in snow and ice. An officer entered the pond and rescued the dog who was placed immediately into a patrol jacket, used as a blanket.

Officers immediately transported the dog to the Metro Animal Emergency Clinic in Dartmouth for examination. It was determined that the dog was an approximately 10-year-old female Sheltie mix who had been on its own for some time. There was no collar or microchip to identify the dog and the favouring of her hind leg was related to arthritis.

This dog is now safe with Homeward Bound City Pound. It had to be shaved due to the mats and debris stuck in it’s fur probably from being lost for a long period of time. If it’s owners are not located it will be adopted out, but not for at least another two weeks. There is a long waiting list of potential adopters. For now, please share so we can try and find it’s owners, thank you.
