Animal Welfare League of Alexandria seeks public help to identify dead dog

The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria is trying to find out more about what happened to a dog found dead and wrapped in blankets off N. Armistead Street and Beauregard Street.

The AWLA is hoping to find more information about the owners of the dog to inform them of the dog’s death and to try to learn what happened to it.

The dog was likely an un-neutered brown and white pit bull-type dog, aged anywhere between 1-5 years old. They also released a drawing of what they believe the dog looked like.

“We are not sure what caused this dog’s death, but we are hoping to connect with his owners to ensure they are aware and attempt to ascertain what may have happened,” the AWLA said. “If you think you recognize this dog or may know anything about him, we urge you to contact us by calling 703-746-6000 or emailing [email protected]

There is a reward offered for information leading to the identification of the owner. Information can also be anonymously submitted online, though contact via phone or email is preferred in case there are follow up questions.
