Sex: Female, Age: 12-13 yrs

Collar/Tags: Pink collar with black skulls, unsure if tags are still on

Lost on: 09/23/2016

Area: Sherwood, Lunenburg, NS

Additional Notes: Coco bolted when being put on a leash Friday. She has a history of leaving and retuning independently but has not come back this time. She left from a home near Sherwood road on highway 14 and has previously been found heading in the direction of Kaiser Meadows. She loves woods and may be anywhere. She can be shy so gentle coaxing would be required. Very motivated by food or treats. Please don’t try to chase her or she will run. But if she comes to you she will allow herself to be carried and will easily get in a car. Coco is on the small side for a beagle, graying face, mostly white. White fur is smooth, dark brown is coarse. She may have the remnants of a breeder tattoo in an ear.

HAPPY ENDING: Dodge was Found: RAINBOW BRIDGE: Bear Passed Away: Lost Dogs: Wellington, Halifax Co., NS — German Shepherds, Males, 5 & 4 — “Bear & Dodge”



Bear & Dodge

Message to ALL from Bear and Dodge’s family: “I can not even begin to thank each and everyone of you! You have cared so much about my boys and put so much positive thought into helping find my boy Dodge alive, we are truly grateful. The emergency Vet believes there is no reason Dodge should not make a full recovery.” (4.3.16)

HAPPY ENDING: Home and Safe! Dodge has been found! He is currently being transported “through the thick woods … in a make shift coat sling with 4 men carrying him. He is hurt but very alert and happy to see his mom and dad.” He will be home soon. His owners thank all that cared and shared and everyone for their prayers. NSLDN wishes him a speedy recovery.(3.30.16 – 4.3.16)

UPDATE: 3.30.16 – 7:06pm: RAINBOW BRIDGE: Bear has Passed Away: Beautiful Bear was killed by a passing train today. However, Dodge is still missing. We send our heartfelt condolences to Bear’s family. Let’s get Dodge home safely. Thank you.


UPDATE: 4.1.16 – 1:00pm: UPDATE: 4.1.16 – 1:00pm: Dodge is still missing, and a radius of about 1000ft from the site where bear was found on the tracks has been meticulously searched with people and hunting dogs. We know Dodge was mobile to some degree.The description of the incident indicated he was hit and sent tumbling outside the tracks. There is evidence that he was severely injured, but able to get away. He is most likely on the Southside of the tracks, in the area bounded by Canal Cays drive, and the ends of subdivisions roads in Kinlock, St Andrews village and Lockview. A coyote has been spotted in the area and may or may not be a concern to Dodge. We are still patrolling trails and searching the woods. He was good and healthy, well fed and had a really heavy coat, so even injured in this weather he may still be moving. Please keep sharing his info as the more eyes in the search the more likely he will get back home.

We buried Bear today with his blanket and favourite ball. I would like to say how thankful I am to the employees at CN who cared for my Bear and tried to save him. Who also spent time looking in the woods for Dodge. It means more than we will ever have words for. Also thank you everyone for sharing our posts, helping search for Dodge and sending kind words and messages..

UPDATE: 3.30.16 – 10:00pm: CN said they think they hit Dodge too, but only a bit they searched for him with no luck. We are still looking. He is hurt and was on the tracks that run along kings road threw the woods toward Windsor junction
