UPDATE: Maisie, the the six-month-old Labrador who was lost in West Vancouver almost one month ago, has been found. She was found in the Cypress Bowl area.
Local volunteers and experts hired by the family are continuing their search for Maisie,
“Maisie will be searched for until she is found,” said Valley Calderoni, who has been hired to lead the search. Calderoni, the owner of Canine Valley, said her past experience suggests there is a good chance Maisie will be found.
“The chances are pretty high. She is young and she can survive and there are resources available for her. I have no doubt she will be able to survive this and she will be be found,” she said.
Calderoni said volunteers went door to door this past weekend distributing flyers in the area and asking people to be aware of the lost puppy. There have been some sightings, with the latest being in Altamount neighbourhood on Saturday, although it wasn’t sure the dog was Maisie.
Volunteers have canvassed the neighbourhoods and distributed flyers in Gleneagles, Eagle Harbour, Caufield, Sandy Cove, Westmount, Altamount and Dundarave as well as Horseshoe Bay.
“The search for her is ongoing, we have refreshed the traps, and we are checking the cameras. We have been working very hard with the help of volunteers and other organisations. We’ve got several thousand pairs of eyes looking out for her everywhere on the North Shore,” she said.
Garry Mancell was driving home from Squamish on July 3 when he had an accident near Caulfield area of West Vancouver. Maisie, his six-month old puppy, panicked and ran out of the car into the west bound lanes on the Upper Level Highways. Mancell’s daughter is a veterinarian in Squamish and Gary was driving back to Anmore after having Maizie neutered.
If you see Maisie, don’t call her name or approach her. Please note the direction where she was headed and send Valley and her team her location using a GPS pin. Do not place food outside to lure her in because if she eats she will be less likely to come out to people.
Call 604-848-4401 or 604-250-5097 if you see Maisie.
