If you’re in Pictou County, keep your eyes open for Annie.

This nine-year-old border collie went missing in Trenton on Tuesday. She’s from New Glasgow and may be trying to make her way home. She was wearing a rainbow collar with a name tag attached.

Annie is very nervous so it’s important not to chase her or used a loud voice.

If you see her, please call Ellen at 902-759-3089.
