Dog found running on Toll Road; search for owners on


A search is on for the owners of a dog found running in and out of traffic along the Indiana Toll Road on Sunday.

Indiana State Police said around 3:45 p.m. Sunday, troopers found a dog along the Toll Road in Lake County. Motorists reported the dog had been “running in and out of traffic from the inside shoulder,” state police said.   

The dog was “scared and skittish” when police came upon it, but troopers captured it by putting a jacket over it, state police said. They gave the dog food and water. 

 Now, authorities are searching for the dog’s owners.

  The dog is described as a male, with white shaggy hair, dirty and muddy with no collar and  “unbelievably cute,” state police said. He was nicknamed “Charlie” by troopers at the scene.

“Charlie” was taken to the Humane Society in Hobart. The shelter can be reached at (219) 942-0103.
