A dog was recovered and reunited with its owner this past week, thanks to the efforts of a Stamford Police officer and the Stamford Animal Care & Control Shelter, Officer Stendhal Jean-Louis said.
The yellow Lab, named Woody, was recovered from in front of the Stamford Academy of Jewish Education in the 700 block of High Ridge Road.
Jean-Louis said the officer picked up the dog and brought it to the shelter, who helped track down the owner and reunite the pair.
Jean Louis said additional incidents along High Ridge Road over the past week included the following:
- On Thursday, Oct.18, there was another reported dog bite in the 300 block. This comes on the heels of a number of bites in recent weeks and, more broadly, months.
- A sick raccoon was recovered and tested for rabies after being found along the road.
Two pit bulls were recovered from in front of a home in Stamford's West Side this past week after the owner called and said the dogs were keeping her from exiting the home.
Jean-Louis said the animals were not acting hostile, just causing the homeowner to be too anxious to exit the home. The dogs were recovered near Sylvandale Avenue and West Avenue.
