Found: lost/loose schnauzer/poodle mix dog, male, intact, silver/gray coat, brown eyes, recently groomed, about 17 in. tall and about 30 lbs at Springbrook Park this evening around 5:30 PM.

He has a collar and an Alcoa dog tag dated 2008, tag #818 (I think). No other tags. Could be three or four years old, maybe older. Seems mature.

Right now he's at the Alcoa PD HQ on Wright Rd. (983-3620) in a K9 officer kennel. They are trying to locate an animal control officer who can access their computer to look up the tag number and/or scan him for a chip.

They promised they wouldn't send him to the pound without talking to us first. Thanks so much to Alcoa PD officer Hunter Brooks for helping out.

The dog is friendly and seems trained and he's as handsome and sweet as he can be. Please spread the word if you know someone who might know whose dog this is and is looking for it.

Email me at for more info or if you know who the dog belongs to.

UPDATE: Alcoa PD located the owner and the dog was reunited with its pack. It had dug out from under a fence and gotten away, and the owner was looking for it.
