Plenty of Pets

Shiloh went missing from Wide Open Wilderness Campground, in Urbania, when she was spooked by thunder.

She is a 19-month old German Australian shepherd (German shepherd and Australian shepherd). She was not wearing a collar but she is microchipped.

Friendly, but skittish and loud voices will frighten her.

If you can help Shiloh get back home call Colchester Animal Control at 902-897-3170 or Karla at 902-877-7017.
