Is Anyone Missing This Dog?
Birmingham resident Barb Mossner likes her new adopted dog, but wonders about his original owner.
Birmingham resident Barb Mossner recently posted a photo of her newly-adopted rescue dog in the Birmingham Patch Pics & Clips gallery, but not just to mark the special occassion — she genuinely hopes to find the animal's previous owner.
Mossner adopted the dog from Almost Home Animal Shelter in Southfield last weekend, and would like to have a new companion for her aging dog at home. But she said something about how well-behaved, groomed and acclamated the dog is makes her feel like someone out there is missing him.
"He's housebroken, friendly, and isn't scared of any of his surroundings, and I just can't believe no one is looking for this dog," she said. "If I lost my dog, I'd be beside myself. But I just can't find anyone looking for him."
The staff at the no-kill shelter could only tell Mossner that the white, young adult male Bichon mix was found as a stray on Oct. 16. She said a location was not available. The dog is neutered, weighs about 16 pounds, and was recently groomed in a 'puppy' cut, she said. His legs are a little longer than most Bichons.
Anyone with more information is encouraged to call Mossner at 248-928-3074.
