A Mercer Island Police patrol on Tuesday made an unusual discovery near Homestead Park.
Police discovered a small, tan, male Chihuahua, possbily a puppy. He is a golden tan color, in great condition, but with no collar and he is not micro chipped.
Commander Leslie Burns said one of the department's staff members took the dog home overnight, and he's keeping the MIPD company today. Burns reached out to local media, including Mercer Island Patch, to help contact the owners of the lost Chihuahua.
"He is super friendly, very pretty and a good little guy, so I am sure someone is missing him greatly!" she said. "We do not want to send him to Animal Control, so are trying to keep him with us until we can find his family."
If you recognize the dog or know the pet's owners, please contact the Mercer Island Police Records Department at 206-275-7610, then press 7.
