Guys, our reader Liz Arnold, found this adorable scared pup. He is SO cute! Here is what Liz emailed us about him:

“I live in Bushwick on the border of Ridgewood, and I found this adorable dog last night who was so scared that he wouldn’t move off the steps or drink or eat. I took him in and he’s doing much better. I will bring him to a non kill shelter, [BARC, to see if he has a microchip] but thought I’d try to spread the word through thecommunity, too. People think he’s a terrier mix or mini poodle. ”

Update: Guys, we are very pleased that the pooch’s owners were located within hours after we posted this article. His name is Bingo and he’s safe at home. Thank you all for your help!
