Katie was seen Aug 26 at 12:30 am at Tansley Woods Park!!! That is south of Upper Middle Road between Walkers Line and Appleby in Burlington ON
Katie is a black Shih Tzu with white on her face. Approximately 10 lbs. Wearing red collar. Shy & skittish. Does not bark or wine. She does know her name. She is a scared little girl who needs all of us to step up.
During the last leg of a transport on June 12, 2013, Katie bolted from the office of her handler at 3375 North Service Rd, Burlington Ontario. We haven’t been able to capture Katie yet. Searches have been formed almost everyday to rescue Katie. Live traps have been set and even a dog tracker was on hand to help find her.
There have been various sightings since she bolted from her new foster home on June 12, so we know she is out there! These types of dogs do not usually go very far unless they are forced to and if they do, they usually will not roam out of an area they have become familiar with. Katie was seen Aug 26 at 12:30 am at Tansley Woods Park!!! That is south of Upper Middle Road between Walkers Line and Appleby in Burlington ON.
If you sight her, please call or text 647-278-7250 or 905-220-2116 immediately.
If Katie has been sighted DO NOT try to catch her, she will run!
- If Katie isn’t moving, get as low to the ground as possible. Sitting would be ideal. Stay quiet and still, not looking her in the eyes. Softly calling her name or saying “good girl” in a soothing, calming voice may help.
- Katie is VERY food motivated. Offer her food if you have anything available. Move VERY slowly and try to get her to come to you for the food. Try and throw a treat near her. Once she shows interests you can start to throw treats closer and closer to lure her towards you. Patience is essential. Lost dogs are scared, confused and very cautious. Katie must be made to feel secure and safe.
- Sit quietly as long as Katie isn’t moving. If she is moving, move very slowly and quietly to follow her.
