East Providence Animal Control supervisor William Muggle said Tuesday that the middle-aged "puppy" is basking on the attention. "She is such a good dog," he said.
EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- A Bichon mix dog that was hit by a car and became wedged under the car's front grill on Sept. 20 will not be put up for adoption for at least another week, East Providence animal control supervisor William Muggle said.
Muggle said officials are hoping to reunite the female dog -- possibly a mix of a Poodle and a Bichon Frise about 6 years old -- with its rightful owner.
Muggle said the dog had a collar but no tag. It also had a microchip, but the owner never registered it so welfare officials have only been able to track it down to a Midwest dog breeder. They have not been able to talk to the breeder so far, Muggle said.
To be greeted every day, or, to be more precise, several times a day, as if you just delivered a Publisher’s Clearinghouse million dollar check to the lucky winner is endlessly gratifying.
