Australian Cattle Dog Sighting
Silver/Blue Australian Cattle Dog with Black Ears was heading North on
Hwy. 525 just North of Maxwelton Road about 7pm this evening. I was
headed Southbound and turned around and tried to get him/her to come
to me to try to bring the dog off of the highway. It was fearful and
didn't let me come close. Followed with blinkers to get traffic to
slow down so the dog wouldn't get hit, it wouldn't leave the highway
and was running from side to side and down the middle. Tried again
with several other people to slow down traffic and get the dog off of
the highway. It finally ended up leaving the highway and disappeared
into the forest. Had a collar on, but could get close enough to get a
good look. I'm hoping it made it back home or to where it was headed.
Wanted to post this just in case someone was looking for this dog.
The dog seemed to be in good health and had a healthy looking coat.
Just wish it would have trusted me enough to let me get near it. I'm
hoping it doesn't go back onto the highway. I just wish poeple would
be more careful about their companions to make sure they are kept
secure in their own homes and yards and not left to run loose to end
up injured or dead on the side of the road!
