Residents in Elizabeth Lake are hoping to find the owner of a lost dog. The German Shepherd has been living on the lakefront for several days.

Residents say the dog probably got loose during the massive Powerhouse Fire and fled the flames. Neighbors have been bringing him food and keeping him company every day.

Animal control officials won't pick him up, but they're convinced the dog's owner can't be far away.

"He belongs to somebody, so maybe he just got away in the fire, the chaos of the fire. We need to find his home, so I hope the owners who are looking for him will please come and get him," said Denise, a woman who found the dog.

She calls the dog "Bubba" and says he was obviously wearing a collar before the fire.
