Someone's Pet Beagle Found on FM 2769

(Dear e-News)
Our neighbor, Carl Campbell, found this beautiful female beagle on 2769 between Reed Dr. and Volente Beach Water Park (just past Reed, in the curve going toward Volente Beach) Friday afternoon.   She almost got hit by a car and he stopped to rescue, pick her up.  She looks like she's going to have babies.  Please send out her picture in a VNA E-Letter and see if someone will claim her.  She may belong to a Volente resident and if so, we want to make every effort to get her home.  No collar or ID of any kind.  She is a very sweet, docile dog that surely belongs to someone.  For more info, call Carl Campbell at 335-4689  THANKS SO MUCH for your help with this!
