Update: Millie has been found and returned to her owner.

A local woman is asking for help searching for her 1-year-old shepherd mix after she escaped from a grooming appointment at PetSmart in San Juan Capistrano.

Amanda Collis said her dog, Millie, was at PetSmart getting groomed around 1 p.m. on Tuesday, April 11 and was last seen running toward the Dollar General. Collis said Millie may have been hit by a truck.

Millie is a 1-year-old floppy-eared shepherd mix and is skittish, afraid of most men and very standoffish. Millie is chipped but missing her collar.

Officials with PetSmart said they are offering a $1,000 reward for the dog’s return.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Collis by calling 301.473.1410.
