Police are trying to trace the owners of this pup found wandering in Hough-on-the Hill.
The young female dog was discovered by a member of the public around 7.30am this morning and was handed in to Grantham Police Station. Officers say they do not yet know what breed she is or how old she is. She is not microchipped and is not wearing a collar.
She will be picked up by South Kesteven District Council officers later in the day.
Police are appealing for anyone who knows who owns the dog to get in touch.

Two women and a man have pleaded guilty to their involvement in a burglary where seven, six-week-old Poochon puppies were stolen from their Cusworth home in May this year.
Richard Thomas, 27, of Ennerdale Road, Wheatley Hills, Kerry Scase, 29, of Beech Street, South Elmsall and Tonya Newton, 25, of Almhome Lane, Arksey, all appeared at Sheffield Crown Court on 28 October.
Thomas was charged with burglary and Scase and Newton were charged with handling stolen goods. All three pleaded guilty to the offences they were charged with.
The puppies were stolen from Cusworth Lane, on 28 May when Thomas broke in at around 11am and stole the puppies, a cross between the Poodle and Bichon Frise breed, from a pen they were in with their mother.
All three were arrested on Tuesday 3, June, and the puppies, were safely recovered from the women’s addresses the same day.
They have been bailed until Tuesday, 25 November, when they will appear at Sheffield Crown Court to be sentenced.
All seven of the puppies recovered well from their ordeal, as there were concerns at the time for their wellbeing as they were too young to be away from their mother. The owners of the puppies suffered unnecessary distress and heartache when they were stolen. I am pleased all three have pleaded guilty and have taken responsibility for their actions.
