Family still searching for beloved dog

A Winnipeg family is still searching for its lost pet amid frigid temperatures nearly a week after the dog went missing.

Talia, the missing Colombian dog that made headlines after she disappeared on Boxing Day, still hasn’t been found.

Carolina Amador, 11, shows off a photo of her dog, Talia on Sun., Dec. 29, 2013. Talia, a 16-month-old female cocker spaniel cross, ran away from the family's Glenwood Drive yard and onto the Red River just a day after moving to Winnipeg from Colombia.

 The golden retriever/cocker spaniel cross went missing during the evening of Dec. 26 from the 200 block of Glenwood Crescent, just a day after she had arrived in Canada.

Lourdes Villa and daughter Carolina miss their beloved pooch but are grateful for an outpouring of public support.

 "We’re still looking for my little dog," said Lourdes. "The people from the Winnipeg Lost Dog Alert are helping incredibly."

 The Villas believe Talia ran out of their backyard in Elmwood, across the frozen Red River and got lost somewhere in the area of St. John's Park at Main Street and Cathedral Avenue.

 "We have not stopped losing hope and we know we’ll find her," Lourdes said Wednesday. "Thanks to everyone for helping me search for my dog."

If you have any information on Talia’s whereabouts, please contact the Villa family at 204-430-6615, or email lourdesvilla3@gmail.com.
