FAIRFIELD — A dog found at a highway rest stop was likely abandoned, animal control officials said.

The male Pomeranian was found at the Interstate 95 southbound rest stop Wednesday. It’s believed he was abandoned because of the place he was found, officials said.

But, if he isn’t abandoned, and you know this dog, contact animal control in Fairfield at 203-254-4857.

If the owner does not come forward, animal control said, the dog will be made available for adoption in eight days.
