Leela is a shetland from colombian small agility team that got lost in sweden before FCI agility world cup
in october. Search teams with dogs have been looking for her since the first day; calls to 0708 96 93 70 reporting
observations that might be Leela are very helpful because the search area needs to be reduced to try to catch her and because
sometimes she panics and runs away from her secure heaven. Leela is in survival mode and does not trust people; that's why
the search team asks people not to try to catch her nor call her when they think they found Leela but instead call immediately to
0708 96 93 70 to prevent new escapes. There is a map on facebook with marks of the observations (confirmed by Id dogs)
during these 3 months in Sweden. Up to the last observations, she is in good shape and with the same harness she was using
