Looking for the Owner of a Stray Dog in Manor Lands

Owners have reported that a dog has been wandering around in Manor Lands for over a month. We would like to find the owner.  The information has been posted on the Facebook page with no results so far.  Some people have been putting food out for the dog, but, the dog is fearful and won’t get close enough to be captured.

Do you know who this dog might belong to?  If so please contact a board member as soon as possible.
