Found: Chihuahua/terrier puppy in Echo Park

Submitted by N. White

We found this puppy running on the streets of Echo Park on Saturday. She was taken to the shelter, the North Central Animal Care and Control Center.  She is young chihuahua/terrier mix.  She had a collar but no tags. She’s an adorable little thing.  I hope someone adopts her. http://www.petharbor.com/pet.asp?uaid=LACT4.A1300377

  1. Adorbs!


  3. I could never take that little angel to the pound:(

  4. Please don’t be critical of a finder taking a lost dog to the shelter. Often, it is the best way to reunite it with its rightful owner. The shelter can check for a microchip and hold the pet for a few days in order to let the rightful owner find and claim it. Info & a photo can be posted on the shelter website. If no owner shows up, the finder (or someone else) can adopt the dog, then it’s legally theirs….. after it’s chipped, vaccinated, spayed/neutered. A win-win situation.

  5. You can bring the dog in to be scanned for the micro chip for no charge. I am not being critical of the person who took the dog to the pound, I do not personally leave lost/abandoned animals at kill shelters. I have left flyers at the pound and have been able to place all the dogs that I have found.

  6. The person who took her to the pound is a young girl who came across the dog while jogging. She took the puppy home hoping to keep it while looking for the owner. She lives in an apartment with a roommate who wouldn’t allow her to keep the dog for any amount of time because she had a cat. The girl was only trying to protect the dog from being harmed on the streets. Some people despite the best intentions aren’t in a position to take care of lost animals.

  7. She has been adopted!
