lost dog
Dog Found - Looking for Owner

Jackie Cestero of Animal Rescue writes:

Found: A female puppy - approximately 3-6 months old.
Where: Dirt road between Shoal Bay and Island Harbour by the bottom

This lovely puppy was found trapped under the bush unable to move because her leash was tied around a number of trees. She had probably been there for a day or two. It would appear that she got away from her owner because she has a new collar and leash (chain link with red handle). She has a wonderful personality and loves to ride in the car.

If you have lost this puppy or know anything about the owner, please contact Morlen's Veterinary Hospital 497-4600 Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
