A rescued sled dog is still missing after running away from its owner in Summerland on Friday (Sept. 3).
In a plea to a local Facebook group, Dayna Johnson Fedeli details the events that took place causing their dog, Solo, to run off.
“He has been on the run (or in hiding) since Friday evening when the retractable leash attached to his harness hit the ground and spooked him,” the post says.
According to Fedeli, Solo was rescued from the Yukon earlier this year after hiding near a working mine site.
Solo was spotted near Trout Creek on Saturday morning by park security but hasn’t been seen since.
Fedeli is asking anyone who spots Solo to call or message her at 250-486-7887, adding not to try to approach him or catch him, as he “hates feeling trapped,” and will run away.
