SIGHTED: Roaming Dog: Golden Retriever, red collar - Chester Road, Vaughan, NS

“…Want to make my Chester Rd neighbours aware of a golden lab running out Chester Road with two idiots in a loud Ford truck chasing it. When they got beside him they revved their truck and he ran into the woods near Chateau Village. He had a red collar on. I had to stop so I wouldn’t hit him but there was no way I could get near him. Hope someone knows who owns him and may be looking for him/her.”

HAPPY ENDING: Twist: English Springer Spaniel, 16 yr old, liver/white – Gaspereau Mtn, NS

Happy Ending… this is so wonderful.  Twist went for a 6 hour adventure today… much to the distress of his family.  He ended up following the tree line down the Mountain, where he met up with two streams.  Fortunately for his family, Twist does not like to get his feet wet, and after such a big adventure… about 10 km from home, he decided to just curl up in the sand and have a nap.  He is so lucky his Mom looked so carefully for him, found him, and brought him home safe and sound where he will continue to have a big nap.  Safe n’ Sound!  Phew!!  Just had to report this story, even though it was resolved by the time I contacted the owner.  Thanks to Darrin Harvey of the radio station K-Rock 89.3 for passing on the info when Twist was missing.  Obviously an awesome part of that community.

Nova Scotia’s Lost Dog Network makes the Paper!

from today’s Herald
Missing dogs focus of online search network

Sisters who operate website share passion for animals
Mon, Apr 11 – 4:54 AM
When Duke went missing last week, a team of investigators quickly mobilized to find the 40-kilogram boxer.
Shortly after he posted his dog’s information on Kijiji, Duke’s owner Tyler Naugler of Spryfield got a call from Anne Morrison of the Nova Scotia Lost Dog Network saying she was on the case.
“She was absolutely unbelievable,” Naugler said.
The network, launched with a website in January, has quickly grown into a popular resource for dog owners whose pets go missing, with around five new posts every day.
Morrison gave Naugler a template for a lost dog poster and told him what steps to take to find his missing dog.
He made calls to a local shelter and filled out posters with Duke’s photo. The following morning, Halifax Regional Municipality’s animal services brought Duke home. The happy ending is one of many the lost dog network has had role in.
Morrison and her sister, Heather, see their website as a way to get the word out about missing dogs and provide a resource to those who are under emotional stress while their dogs are missing.
“We’ve all lost a dog, whether it was for five minutes or five days, and it is just heart-wrenching,” said Morrison.
The sisters are volunteers with the Alliance for Responsible Pet Ownership and are passionate about animals.
They created the website after locating a missing Burmese mountain dog over Christmas using Facebook and posters. The network of people they created through Facebook
“We thought, ‘Wow, we could do this for a lot of dogs,’ ” said Heather Morrison. They created the lost dog network website, found at bit.ly/eCGsAQ, soon after.
The sisters trawl Craigslist and Kijiji every day looking for new posts and people they can help. But people are now coming to them when their dogs go missing.
The majority expect the worst, thinking their pet is either stolen or lunch meat for a hungry coyote, the Morrisons said. They give encouragement to them, reminding them that 80 per cent of the time dogs are just lost.
The sisters post the information they receive from owners on their website and send it out via linked Twitter and Facebook accounts.
The site has photos of lost dogs as well as posts for dogs that people catch roaming in their yards and neighbourhoods.
And there’s a list of happy endings, dogs reunited with their owners, each filed with the same update: “Home safe ’n’ sound.”
