Leigh's Lost and Found: featuring a beautiful Retriever/ Shepherd mix

In today's Leigh's Lost and Found report, our featured dog is a beautiful long haired pup that animal control is not quite sure what breed is.

"She's possibly got some Retriever, maybe some Shepherd in her. She's got a very fluffy long coat but her exact breed is hard to pinpoint."

Animal control believes the female dog is a little older, around five or six. Someone found her loose in the 800 block of north Grant and brought her to the shelter.

She does have a collar on but the ring on it that would hold a tag is empty.

As it finally gets colder, shelter coordinator Josh Doss is stressing how important it is to have some kind of ID on your dog and to make sure they get through the winter safely.

"Be prepared for it starts getting really cold and we get snow and ice. You'll want to make sure you have proper, permanent shelter for any animals you keep outside or just start bringing them inside more often."
