WASHINGTON — The Fairfax County Animal Shelter is hoping to find the owners of a very special Sheltie who was recently brought in.

“This little girl is the smallest Sheltie we’ve ever seen,” reads a post on the shelter’s Facebook page. “She’s barely bigger than a large cat!”

The shelter says the dog has been on the run for six months in the Lorton area and was brought to safety earlier this week by an animal control officer.

The shelter is hoping to find the dog’s owners. But if they don’t, they’ll put the dog up for adoption next week.
