Leigh's Lost and Found: featuring a lost Chow/Lab puppy

In today's Leigh's Lost and Found report, we're featuring a very playful, energetic pup who is quick to get away from you.

We learned that first hand when he came to the station and slipped his collar and took off. Thankfully we caught up to him.

Animal control believes he's only about six months old and is possibly a Chow/Labrador mix. Someone found him running loose in the 1600 block of north Washington on December 21.

He did have a blue nylon collar on but no tags or chip. He's very social, sweet and appears to have had a little training.
