Leigh's Lost and Found: Looking for the owner of this young Plott Hound mix
In our Leigh's Lost and Found today, our featured lost dog is a hound mix found in a vacant lot.
He was found just playing by himself in that lot on Mount Vernon and Golden back on February 28th.
"We think he's some kind of hunting hound mixed with something like a Lab or something else that's a little bit smaller. He definitely has the colorations of a Plott Hound but he's much tinier in build."
He's a young dog, only about a year old, with plenty of energy.
He did have a red, nylon collar on when he was picked up but shelter coordinator Josh Doss says it was very faded and old, and there were no tags or chip.
He's in pretty good shape overall but has not been fixed which is likely why he got loose.
