Evasive Dogs again


Happy winter to all!

The City of Plano has asked the HOAs to alert all residents to be on the lookout for 2 dogs that have bitten several people in Plano. They have asked all residents to CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY IF YOU SEE THESE DOGS! The dogs have been on the loose for several months. One dog is mostly black & is an Australian Cattle Dog & the other is a mostly white & black spotted mixed breed. They are medium sized dogs.

DO NOT APPROACH THESE DOGS! The dogs are very stealthy & have managed to allude all attempts at capture. Please be aware the black Australian Cattle Dog has bitten people from behind on the lower leg while they have been jogging or moving. This fits with the Australian Cattle Dog’s instinct to herd cattle, which they do by biting the heels of the cattle. Please be aware of your surroundings when you are jogging or walking briskly, as the black dog has surprised many who have been bitten.

Again, if you see these dogs, the City wants residents to CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY! DO NOT call Animal Services or any other city dept. before you CALL 911! The City wants to get these dogs off the streets & needs the public’s help in locating them as quickly as possible!

PLEASE CLICK ON THE CITY WEBSITE LISTED BELOW for photos of the dogs & much more information about the dogs.

Please be alert to your surroundings when you are outside & CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY if you see these dogs!

Stay safe!
