FOUND MAR 09, 2021 Gladstone Firehouse/Route 60 - Red Female Redbone Coonhound, approximately 3+ years.  She looks like she's had pups in the last couple of months. No collar on dog (it had one when the dog was see a couple of days ago.)  My husband saw the dog 2 days ago at a neighbors and they couldn't catch the dog to read the tag on the collar other than the area code was 434 and the dog ran away into the woods.  The dog came back to the neighbor's today, with no collar, and my husband was able to catch her and bring her to our house with a fenced in back yard so she is safe.  An Animal Control Officer will pick her up on March 12 and hopefully this nice dog will get back to her owners.  Please contact Animal Control (see number above) if this is your dog.
