A POST about a lost border collie near the Kingaroy skate park has attracted some serious attention on Facebook.

There have been more than 120 comments about the poor border collie who some residents say has been living on the streets for weeks.  

Residents have shared their stories about feeding and trying to catch the timid dog, so far without success.

The RSPCA has been inundated with calls from concerned residents and shelter manager Sally Charles has been desperately trying to catch the dog after hours.

Queensland RSPCA spokesperson Michael Beatty said because there is no inspector in the area the issue had been passed on to the state government's Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.

"I expect the department will then liaise with council to capture the dog," Mr Beatty said.

If the South Burnett Regional Council and DAFF each send a representative to capture the dog, the border collie will have brought three organisations down to one park.

Not to mention countless concerned residents.

Do you know where this dog lives?
