A small dog was found on the front porch of a home on Devonshire Drive near Madera Elementary School Saturday morning, and the residents of the home distributed photos and a description in hopes of locating the owner.
The notice, distributed by the Arlington Neighbors email list, described the dog as
- Sex: Male
- Color: Black and Rust
- Size: 15+ lbs
- Breed: Terrier Mix
- Coat: Medium length (may be just groomed)
"We have a dog and I can't imagine what the owner must be going through right now," said the resident who sent the notice to Arlington Neighbors. "...He seems to be groomed so I don't think he's been lost for long."
The dog was taken to the Contra Costa County Animal Shelter in Pinole, 910 San Pablo Ave., 510-724-3966, case number A687746, according to Denise Sangster, moderator of Arlington Neighbors.
