 (July 24, 2015)Help Us Identify this Dogs Owner

 Animal Control officials need your help in identifying the owner of this dog.

A citizen reportedly found the dog in the Safeway parking lot of Fairfax Towne Center on West Ox Road around 11:45 a.m. on June 7. No owner has claimed the dog. Since several weeks have passed, officers are reaching out to the public to see if anyone recognizes the dog and can help re-connect her with her owner.

Although the young pit bull is thin, officers believe she was cared for and had an owner at one point.

Contact Animal Control at 703-691-2131 with any information.
