Dog from Golden found in Calgary shopping mall parking lot

A local dog took an unexpected trip to Calgary but luckily was returned to its owners.

A local dog took an unexpected trip to Calgary but luckily was returned to its owners.

The dog named Lucky is owned by Cari Wilson and her family.

Lucky got out of the door of the family’s home on July 6 and eventually ended up near a highway in Golden.

Neighbours near the family, who were also looking for their dog, spoke to a person who found Lucky and said he were going to take it to the RCMP detachment.

The car had license plates from Alberta but it never showed up at the detachment.

“We did not see him again. We posted on lost dog in B.C. and Alberta. We called the SPCA and posted on Facebook. I called all the vets as well,” Wilson said.

A friend of the family eventually spotted Lucky on a shelter website in Calgary.

“When I went there I asked who dropped him of. They said Lucky was found in a parking lot of a shopping mall in the city,” she said. “She does not like the car so I figure someone left the window down for her and she jumped out. She does get off the leash quite a bit even though we do keep her chained up.”

The event could not have happened on a worse day for Wilson’s daughter Kennedy.

“It was Kennedy’s  birthday party on the day she went missing so it was dramatic for her,” she said. “She was very upset and wanted to go looking for him during her party. That was hard because we knew she was in a car but did not know where she was.”

It seems the dog was given the right name according to Wilson who said she was lucky to finally come home.
