Exhausted police had their spirits lifted by a lost dog found wandering an evacuated area of Williams Lake on the weekend.

Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey says officers were doing a check near Mountain House Road and Hwy. 97 North July 31 when a black and white dog “emerged from an area that had been burned by the fire.”

“We think she might be a border collie cross,” says Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey. “She’s very mild-mannered and easy going, and has been a good morale boost for our police officers, working long shifts.”

The lost dog was given food from items donated earlier, water and a makeshift bed but can't stick around.

“Williams Lake RCMP will be reluctantly turning over the dog to the local SPCA today, who will hopefully be able to reunite her soon with her owners,” O’Donaghey says.
