RAINBOW BRIDGE: Passed Away: From Family Friend/Caretaker: “Unfortunately, Shadow was hit by a car on the Waverley road this am. During the last 4 years of life he has spent three of those years with me here. We loved him very much and he is dearly missed by myself and staff. He was a happy loving dog who enjoyed life, especially other dogs. Often we referred to Shadow as “A lover not a fighter”.

Additional Notes: Thick white black and grey fur. has one blue eye and one half blue and half brown eye. He has grey on his foot that you can tell it shouldn’t be there, that’s from his constant digging at the kennel door, and why he needs to be wired under his kennel because he is pro digger outter!

Shadow is friendly but will not likely come to strangers. he will likely stand far enough away for you not to be able to catch him. he comes to me as soon as he sees me.

I suspect he is still the the Fall river/ Fletchers Lake/ Wellington area. if you do site him please call me and I will come there asap.

HAPPY ENDING: Home, Safe n’ Sound: Sighted: Roaming Dog: Hwy 104, Exit 36, Heatherton, Antigonish, NS – White Shepherd/Husky, Female, Adult – “Unknown”



HAPPY ENDING: Home, Safe n’ Sound!! Wow!!! It has been confirmed, thanks so much to Carol A., that this dog is actually alive and home safe.  There is however, a small (~25lb) white dog that has passed away on Hwy 104.  We do not know the owners of this dog and will keep this info incase we hear any more.  Meanwhile, the dog in this photo (~100+lbs) is alive and well on his Cattle Farm outside Antigonish.  This dog was used to having 600 acres to himself when a hunter this fall left food around. This is when he started roaming. Meanwhile his owner has just neutered him hoping that helps in cutting down on his wanderings.  He was shocked to hear that he was on the highway and will be keeping his dog contained in the future. So conclusion: TWO White Dogs, one small one was hit by a car and killed on Hwy 104, the other large one was seen roaming the highway for the last few weeks and is now home safe. Thank you Carol A. for putting together all the pieces.  (11.8.13 – 12.4.13)
