(5-year-old Roscoe/Submitted)

A 5-year-old blond Great Dane cross named Roscoe went missing from his owner’s mother’s home at about 3:45 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon.

Roscoe’s owner’s mom, Deborah, was pet-sitting him while his owner is on vacation, when he slipped out of the house in the 4000 block of Carey Road near Kenneth Road.

After he ran away from the residence, Deborah reached out to ROAM (Reuniting Owners with Missing Animals), through which she discovered that Roscoe may have been hit by a vehicle while running across the street.

He then kept running and was headed towards the Colquitz Creek area. The last time Roscoe was spotted was at 4:15 p.m. at the intersection of Marigold and Interurban Rd – this is where reports say he was hit by a second vehicle.

The 120 lb dog usually lives with his owner in Central Saanich, which is where Deborah says he may be heading. According to her, Roscoe is wearing a collar and responds when called by name.

“After being hit by two cars, I imagine he’s pretty injured,” Deborah told Victoria Buzz.

“When he’s in his own home, he doesn’t like strangers but loves people once he meets them. Right now, he’s lost and scared.”

According to the post on the ROAM Facebook page, Roscoe has been known to be aggressive at times and anyone who sees him should not attempt to contain him by themselves.

If you see Roscoe, call ROAM immediately at 778-977-6260 or 778-977-6265.
