If this dog ever had a name, that name has been forgotten. It was one of a few left at an Oyler Road residence after county animal control rounded up and shot 26 dogs deemed unapproachable and aggressive last week. The dogs’ owner died in August, leaving a “pack” of around 50 ownerless, unvaccinated dogs wandering the Oyler Road area.
