Leigh's Lost and Found: featuring a lost, senior Beagle

In today's Leigh's Lost and Found report, our featured dog is a senior citizen, an older Beagle with a distinctive mark in one of her eyes.

"She does have what seems to be an ulcer that has healed over or the starts of a cataract in her left eye."

The female dog appears to be at least eight years old, possibly as old as ten. Someone found her running in traffic in a northside neighborhood and saved her.

Animal control says that person kept her for a few days but couldn't find an owner.

Shelter coordinator Josh Doss says she's definitely been taken care of and is well fed, and despite her age, she has plenty of pep.

"She's still got plenty of energy and she'll talk to you if she's not getting the attention she wants from you right away."
