SCHAUMBURG, Ill. — A suburban shelter is asking for the public’s help in finding a dog that escaped from its facility earlier this month.

According to the Almost Home Foundation in Schaumburg, Ill., one of the shelter’s rescue dogs escaped from the kennel on Aug. 9. The shelter says the dog, nicknamed Surfer Girl and also known as Charlotte, was last seen heading east on Wise Road in Schaumburg, and was also spotted at Wise Road and Summit Drive two times.

The shelter did not specify a physical description or breed of the dog but did note it was considered a very shy animal. The shelter also provided the following photos for Charlotte.

The shelter notes the dog was reported as being struck by a car on Aug. 9, but got up and ran away, so it may be injured.

Anyone with information on Charlotte’s whereabouts is asked to call Christine Stein with the shelter at 630-707-0101.

The shelter has also set up a Facebook page as part of its search effort.
