My son found this very sweet girl 11 miles up KY 206. She seems to be a lab mix, fawn in color, and an older dog. She was injured by another dog but has been nursed back to good health. She is very well trained! (Plays fetch, sits, shakes) Great with our children and simply precious! She misses her home! Please help us find her owners! Contact us with any info you may have as to where this dog may have come from! 270-634-1193. BRANDY LOY.
