Public Service Announcement: Did You Lose This Guy?

Found Dog

This guy was found in Park Slope on Sixth Avenue and Sixth Street last night, after apparently being injured by a car. The people that rescued him posted this on Brooklynian yesterday afternoon:
My husband & I found a cute brownish/reddish dog on Sixth Ave & Sixth Street around 11pm last night. He's about 25lbs, and looks to maybe be a shiba inu mixed with something else (pitt?). He was hurt - had been hit by a car - and we took him to the vet. He's still there. He had a black leash and a green and white checked collar with black buckle, but no tags or microchip. Is he yours? Do you know who he belongs to? I'm anxious to get in touch with his owner.
We're hoping this one turns out well and his photo and story are being posted around. The owner can be contacted at nicky (dot) agate (at) nyu (dot) edu.

I have attached him as a lead for the website When a pet goes missing or even lost it is so important that we proactively react to the situation. Taking steps to protect your pet prior to having this scary and overwhelming incident happen. These steps include always keeping a collar on your pet with I.D Tags. Having your pet micro-chipped and registering them properly. Never leaving them outside unattended, this could lead to their escape as well as giving the opportunity for someone to steal your pet.

Making sure that you’re pet (s) are registered properly is vital to helping them return home. There are many companies that you can register your pet with. One of these companies is called they provide not only a registry but they also have created a proactive lost pet alert that is sent out in up to a fifty mile radius to all Shelters, Rescues, Veterinarians, Municipalities, Groomers, Kennels, Pet Industry, and Members. People find lost pets; if your community is aware that you’re pet is missing this will create a local involvement resulting in more pets being reunited with their families. Prevention and preparation is essential to keeping your family together.
