The old adage says a picture is worth a thousand words, but a picture found hidden in the collar of a stray dog only raises more questions about the animal’s past. When the two-year-old pit bull was brought into the Greenville South Carolina animal shelter, workers noticed it was wearing an unusual collar which had an old black and white photo tucked inside. The staff has nicknamed the dog “Soldier” because the picture inside of his collar appeared to be a soldier in a causal pose next to a gate post or fence railing. The dog has no microchip or other identifying marks which might help the shelter locate the owner. Susan Bufano, the shelter’s media relations coordinator, said “it seems someone put the picture in the collar for a reason and even though they have posted the story on their Facebook page, they have no leads.” Bufano added, “Someone might not even want this dog back but may have forgotten they put this photo in there. It’s sad because this photo definitely means something to someone.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell.
