A Ottawa family is appealing to the public for help in locating their beloved family member and service dog after it ran from the Harrow area while they visited over the Thanksgiving long weekend.

The 3-year-old Golden Retriever named Sasha ran from the area of the 6th Concession of Colchester South, near Heritage Village, on Saturday evening.

The dog belongs to Jackie Hicks whose son and daughter both have autism and depend greatly upon the therapeutic qualities, guidance and companionship of this dog.

Hick’s tells police that her son has not slept in three days since the dog went missing and the family has had to return home to Ottawa after visiting for the holiday.

A group of volunteers met Monday night at the Harrow Baptist Church and conducted a search, but failed to locate the dog.

The family advises that Sasha is an indoor dog, so they are encouraging farmers to check their barns and garages.

The last possible sighting was near Sunset Gardens, across from the Baptist Church on King Street in Harrow on Monday October 10th at approximately 4pm.

If located, please call 613-761-8336 or the Ontario Provincial Police Essex County Detachment at 519-723-2491.
