Do you recognize this little guy? His Facebook thread is here, and it's believed he's yet another survivor of the Arkansas tornadoes that devastated many areas April 27.

Found today May 3 in Eagles Nest Cove in Vilonia. This neutered male, looks to be a Lhasa Apso. His tongue sticks out a little bit on the left side of his mouth. He is 16 pounds and was wearing a bone print collar.

The staff believe that he may go with the Lab/Lab mix that was found today as the collar and piece of leach that the Lab had attached to her collar are the same print and the dogs were found in the same area.

This Facebook group page is assisting, with information on rescue groups, where to have pets scanned or treated and other up to date information. Residents who find an animal are asked to hold onto it until it's owner is located.

Please leave a phone number where you can be reached. Don't depend on people being able to reach you on Facebook.

Also remember to be very careful who you release a "found" pet to. Sadly, in other disasters, people have taken advantage of the situation and taken custody of pets that did not belong to them.

People who have lost everything don't need to deal with nefarious folks also.. These disasters bring out people who scam, so please beware
Examiner articles are updated and contact removed after pets are reunited with family. This simplifies keeping up with the many pets still needing help finding
