Found Dog

Oct 1 2011

*** UPDATE *** The dog has been reunited with its owner! Thanks to Patrick for creating a happy ending for the pup and his person.


Submitted by Patrick Busko:

I was in Candler Park last night for the movie fest and found a boxer with no collar or tags.  He is a super sweet dog and well taken care of, obviously someone's pet.  He looks to be a bit older with some grey hair on his face and back but he is primarily reddish brown.

The owner can call me:  Patrick Busko 404-901-8765

I can send pics too
