We found this dog running along Boston Post Road in Madison near Lowrey Field on the evening of July 4th.
It appears to be a poodle mix around 20-25lbs.
The dog has been placed in the Madison Dog Pound.
We really hope the rightful owner will come forward soon.

Sherry and her husband not only found the dog and made sure it was safe, Sherry also took the time to post this announcement, and then send a follow-up email to make sure we got the announcement. We asked her for a few more details, and this is what she told us:
My husband got it out of the road. It willingly came to us and even tried to get in our car. It seems like a very sweet dog but it had no collar or tags. It was exhausted and panting as though it had been running for a while. We gave it water and called police. They came in about two minutes :).
I have told police that we are willing to care for it permanently or until the owner comes forward. We are dog lovers and hate to see it locked up. When I visited the police department today, to inquire about how the dog was doing, I was told that the animal control officer is off until Monday. I then visited the pound to take pictures. The dog is doing well today [Thursday].
I just want to get the word out, so maybe the dog can get out before the weekend. Thanks for helping in this effort. As much as we would love to adopt this dog, it is only right to do our part to find the original owner. I imagine someone is missing their pet. I am guessing the dog is a cockapoo, but that is a guess.
