A mysterious photo found in a homeless dog's collar has captured the imaginations of supporters of Greenville County Pet Rescue and has many of them playing detective.

A 2-year-old Pit Bull who arrived at the shelter in South Carolina and had an old, battered photo of a man tucked away in his collar. The dog, since named Soldier, has not been claimed and no one has identified the man in the photo.

Several people on the shelter's Facebook page have commented that the man appears to be holding a knife in his right hand. Others say he may be holding a soldier's cap. But the person in the black & white picture remains a mystery.

As for Soldier, he is now looking for a forever home. He's friendly with people and with dogs and is healthy. For more information on adopting Soldier visit Greenville County Pet Rescue's website (dog ID #21844639).

As far as the photo goes it's of very poor quality, and there really isn't much to go on within the image. Perhaps an analysis of the paper might lead to an age of the photo. Cleaning up the image a little bit with imaging software might make the face more recognizable. Soldier is a beautiful looking dog. I hope he finds a good home.
