Erratic weather requires pet owners to be responsible for dogs like this cream and light tan bulldog mix picked up by Fannin County Animal Control February 1 on First Street in Blue Ridge.
Her build, stance and body type are typical of the shorter medium sized muscular breed. It appears she has recently given birth to a litter of puppies and is in need of a new forever home if not reclaimed by her owner under Animal Control number 033-18.
Officer JR Cornett said five dogs were taken into the facility last week. One dog was adopted and four reclaimed by their owners.
Rescuing a dog from Animal Control is a great way to give a pet the love and companionship they deserve. The remind pet owners to take extra precaution in caring for animals in extreme weather variations.
The facility encourages pet owners to properly tag their pets and limit roaming. Letting dogs roam without proper identification can lead to them getting picked up or hurt.
Hours of operation at Animal Control are Monday - Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at the facility. After hours the officers follow up with community concerns and respond to stray dog calls.
