Hi there. Last night around 7:30 pm we found a dog on the side of the 403 while travelling eastbound towards Hamilton. We were about 2km west of the Trinity Rd (#52). The dog looked like it had been out for a while - very dirty and smelly. The dog is a female and older (around 8 yrs old maybe) and very friendly. It does not bark at all. Seems to be very homesick but otherwise in good health. It is white/light yellow and looks like a lab mix of some kind. It was wearing a black nylon collar with the word 'hamilton' engraved in the clasp. It did not have dog tags however. I have attached a picture as well.
Please contact me if you would like more information or know who may own this dog.

Just so everyone knows, the dog was not microchipped. Also, the dog may not be as old as I had thought. Seems to only be about 4-5. The dog is now is possession of the Burlington Animal Aid, but you may still contact me about this dog.

We did want to keep the dog longer, but unfortunately, we have travel plans this weekend and in the coming weeks and would not be able to bring the dog. The dog gets a thorough vet examination paid for by Animal Aid and will be put in a foster home while they search for the owners and/or adopt it out. We are hoping some friends will adopt it if it comes to that point.
Animal Aid is a no-kill shelter operating in Burlington.
