Leigh's Lost and Found: featuring a lost Boxer mix found in a Springfield park

In our Leigh's Lost and Found, our featured lost dog was found running loose in a Springfield park.

Someone found the Boxer mix at Lafayette Park near Cambell and Atlantic. Animal control believes she's just out of the puppy stage.

"We think she's about a year. We're thinking maybe between one and two years but I think she's closer to one year. She's very excitable, friendly, she likes to play. She's got a kennel mate that she gets along with very well."

Animal control picked her up on March 11th. They think she's mixed with something like a Hound based on her fur markings, but she does have the distinctive Boxer face and nub tail.

She did have a collar on when they found her. It was an old, faded blue nylon collar, but she didn't have a tag or a chip.

If you recognize this dog or if you've lost a pet, be sure to call animal control at 417-833-3592. You can also check out their website to see pictures of all the animals currently there.
