A Yellowknife woman is asking for the public's help to find her dog who has gone missing in extreme cold weather. 

Cheryl Griffin's six-month old Siberian husky Dash escaped from her 57th Street backyard on Dec. 27

The dog is wearing a purple collar with her name and Griffin's phone number on it. She may also be pulling a 15 foot blue rope behind her.

Temperatures in Yellowknife have been hovering around -40.

Griffin is optimistic her dog will be found.

"The help in Yellowknife has been absolutely amazing," she said.

"I've had absolute strangers coming up to me telling me they've been looking for her. The SPCA has posted it on their Facebook site and have been checking, I've had local kennels looking for her as well as just a ton of people all around town."

Griffin is asking people to contact the N.W.T. SPCA if they have any tips.
