In today's Leigh's Lost and Found report, our featured dog was found loose in the 2600 block of west Madison. He's an unusual mix of a Chihuahua and French Bulldog.
"He's a little stockier and has the big ears of a Frenchie. And he's very sweet too."
When animal control picked him up, he was wearing a black nylon collar but he didn't have a tag or chip.
Shelter coordinator Josh Doss says the male dog is about two to years old. He's a little on the thin side but that could be just his normal body condition or he's been on the run for awhile.
He also hasn't been neutered which really contributes to dogs getting loose.
"Neutering them really cuts down on the time they'll be out running, looking for a girlfriend. They tend to stay home and get a little lazy when they're neutered."
