NORTHAMPTON — City police successfully located the owner of what likely is a mixed-breed dog found wandering the area Thursday afternoon.

Officials said the dog, probably a partial Pomeranian, was picked up on Prospect Street. Though it had no identification tags, it did look as though it had been cared for in the past.

A neutered male, the dog came in with a rainbow-colored colored collar, said Animal Control Officer Shayla Howe. It had been partially shaved, she said.

On Friday afternoon, Northampton Police provided the update about the dog’s owner being located on its Facebook page.
