SOUTH CAROLINA – When animal control officers were called to a Greenville, South Carolina, neighborhood to pick up a wandering pit bull on a cold Monday in December, they didn’t expect a mystery to unfold.

But inside a fold of the dog’s collar, they found a wrinkled black-and-white photo. It had no name or date. A smiling man seated on a railing looks straight into the camera. But, beyond that, the photo offers no clues.

The friendly tan caninenow named Soldier because the man in the photo may be wearing a military uniform, was skinny but well-behaved, said Susan Bufano, community relations coordinator with Greeville County Animal Care. He was not neutered or microchipped.

Bufano said the collar itself isn’t old, which reduces the chances it was placed there long ago and forgotten.
