Area Found: Estatoe, off of Brushy Creek/ North Mountain Drive/Arrowhead Ridge Road
Contact: 828-765-1318 or 321-438-4870
Animal Description:  Small (20 pounds or less) white poodle with floppy ears.  Won’t let me get close enough to see if there’s a collar, so the picture is the best I could do.  Looks a little scruffy, but the tail has a puff ball at the end as if it’s been groomed at some point in its life.  
     Note, the dog is really “seen”, not found.  It won’t let us catch it, but perhaps the owner could.  I’ve called Stewart’s Animal Hospital, Mit. Co. Animal Rescue, and Fit and Trim Pet Services to spread the word.
