Animal Control officers from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department "are trying to locate the owner of a dog that was found tied with a leash in a wooded area over the weekend," a police spokesperson says.

nt and intestinal parasites. A photograph of him leashed to a pine tree in a wooded area has been making the rounds on Facebook," police say. 

But the 6- to 10-year-old dog named Jacob by the Animal Control Center staff is “super friendly” to strangers and has a microchip, indicating that someone cared for him at one time.

"Unfortunately, the microchip was never registered so officers are finding difficulty in determining the previous owner," police say. 

Jacob is being treated by staff veterinarians during the required five-day waiting period until he can be adopted or his fate determined. Staff members are hoping someone recognizes the dog and can help reunite him with his owners. Animal Control officers also would like to talk to the person who leashed him to the tree

Anyone with information on the dog, its owner or the person who abandoned him is asked to call Animal Control at (912) 525-2408

  • Editor's Note: The new normal of crime downtown

    While there is plenty of worry about how violent crime will affect tourism, the real concern is how it will affect the decision of residents whether or not to stay. The idea of leaving for a more safe locale seems almost inconceivable to those of us who’ve invested many years and whole lifetimes here. But Savannah’s just like anyplace else— people and businesses can decide it’s just not worth it anymore.
