Barrington police still searching for dog's owner


Barrington police are still searching for the individual who abandoned a dog inside Haines Park on Sunday night, March 30.

On Thursday, Barrington Police Chief John LaCross said his department had not established any leads on who may have chained the white Husky-mix to a guardrail in the park.

The dog's owner had left a note inside a plastic bag that was tied to the dog's collar, stating that they could not take care of the dog and that it nipped at children.

Chief LaCross said officers have posted flyers around town and also called veterinarians in East Providence, Barrington and Warren to see if anyone could identify who may have owned the dog. He said the department may expand the search into Bristol soon.

Anyone with information about who may have owned the Husky-mix should call the department's confidential tip line at 437-3933.
