In today's Leigh's Lost and Found report, our featured lost dog is a breed you may not have heard of, but her look is easy to recognize.
"You're just a little fox!"
This foxy little girl is actually a Finnish Spitz mix. Animal control picked up the one to two year old female in the 1800 block of west Chestnut Street.
"She's in great condition, perfect! That's the condition I'd want to keep my pets in."
Shelter assistant Rachel Colley says that perfect condition makes her believe the dog definitely has an owner, and in fact, she might live somewhere on the street where she was found. But so far, no one has called the shelter looking for her.
"She's a very sweet girl, really well mannered. She's not used to being on a leash much, but she's learning really quickly. She's really smart."
She already knows some basic commands and is remarkably calm for a dog this young.
"She doesn't jump on you much and she's not loud at all."
Except of course when she's playing guard dog. Unfortunately, though she appears very well taken care of and socialized, she wasn't found with this pink collar on and she had not tags or microchip.
