In today's Leigh's Lost and Found report, our featured dog was found in the 700 block of north Forest and her beautiful markings should make her pretty easy to recognize.
"She's a Catahoula mix and she's got that typical blue merle pattern on her. We think she's mixed with possibly a Shepherd or something similar because she's a little more scruffy that your normal Catahoula."
Someone found the female dog running loose and brought her into the shelter on November first, so they've had her for a little while with no calls.
She didn't have a chip, collar or tags on her but she is well taken care of with trimmed nails and a clean, full coat.
shelter coordinator Josh Doss says she's very sweet with people and animals and she's a bit of a leaner.
"She does know how to walk on a leach but she does tend to lean into you as she walks so it makes it a little difficult to walk.
