Ms Forrest said as neighbours attempted to put Mack in their car to bring to safety, the frightened dog ran off.

"He ran off scared. I'm really worried about him."

Ms Forrest and her family spent the night with friends and are unsure when they will be allowed to return home to look for Mack.

Ms Forrest is hoping anyone with information on Mack's whereabouts can contact her on 0402862665.

Other residents are also calling for help on the Sunshine Coast Lost Pet Register on Facebook.

Most are concerned with no way of going to look for their beloved pets after their pets ran off scared.

Several horses have also been reported to have run off.
