Tiny dog found on Cool Spring Road near Riggs Road

By Andrea Kenner

On Monday, July 14, our neighbors said a dog followed them home from the Adelphi Mill. Once on our side of Riggs Road, the dog roamed through the neighborhood at our end of Cool Spring Road until Barry and I were able to capture him. He is staying with us while we are trying to find his owners.

He is a tiny dog. He looks like he may be part Chihuahua. He is friendly and seems accustomed to living with humans. He is not neutered, and was not wearing a collar when we found him. If you are his owner, or if you know who his owners are, please contact me at agkenner@gmail.com.
