Mounties in Burnaby took to social media to find the owner of a lost dog that showed up at their detachment Friday morning.
"This poor girl has somehow made her way to our detachment at Deer Lake in Burnaby," wrote Burnaby RCMP in a tweet posted shortly after 12:30 p.m. on New Year's Day.
"As much as we enjoy her, we wish to reunite her with her family," the tweet continued.
Police included a photo of the apparently lost pet - a large, white, fluffy dog that Twitter users recognized as a samoyed.
A few hours later, just after 4 p.m., Mounties had still not found the dog's owner.
They said in a follow-up tweet that they had named the dog "Snow" and that they would soon be handing her over to the BC SPCA.
This beauty came to us cold & scared early this morning.
We’re still searching for her family.
Thanks for spreading the word & please keep it up.
We’ve named her “Snow”
She’ll be brought to @BC_SPCA by the end of shift.
We’re staying Pawsitive
