Two days ago I came home to a dog (most likely Pekingnese) in the lobby of my apartment. The dog was shaking, starving and shaken, but he was also clean and recently groomed with a cute collar. I have given it food and water and a safe dry place to sleep until I could find a no kill shelter to take him in. I have also called different shelters to see if there were any reports of dogs missing that match his description.

This dog is definitely traumatized and I fear that his rightful owner is the only one who has any hope of calming him. Someone definitely loved this dog.

I have contacted the animal shelter on 110th to come here and assess the situation, in the meantime, if anyone has any idea who this dog belongs to, please post here.

Thanks so much.

Update: The dog is currently at ACC 110th & 2nd. Its reference number is A0951204. Please forward image along to anyone you know that has dogs that may be able to recognize this pooch. He was very skinny and starving when I found him, so I imagine the dog has been gone for at least a few weeks. Please help spread the word.
