    Officials are trying to locate the owner of a puppy who was rescued from a canal in Southwest Miami-Dade early Monday morning. The dog has no tag or chip.

    Miami-Dade firefighters rescued the small female Shih Tzu between 137th Avenue and 104th Street

    Miami-Dade Animal Services says if the owner of the dog does not claim her within five days, then she will be put up for adoption. She is well-groomed and believed to belong to a home near the canal.
