This sounds like ex-shelter dog "Polly Esther." She "lives" at the wood
carving place in that area and has been reported as being a stray before.
Not sure of her new name or why no name tags.

>Animal Shelter on the Seaplane Base. It is very important to visit the
shelters yourself to check for your dog -- shelter staff may not recognize
your dog from a description over the telephone. Check out the WAIF web site
to see if you recognize a dog currently at the
>shelter ( http://www.waifanimals.org/). If you have found a dog, notify the
shelters also, as well as other places dog owners may contact (like the
veterinary clinics.) A dog license tag
>or other ID on the dog will help return the animal home safely. Consider a
microchip -- a stolen dog will have its tags removed before being dumped, so
a microchip might help return your dog home.
