CROWN HEIGHTS — Can you place this pooch?

A Good Samaritan turned a lost dog in to local police on Tuesday, making the 77th Precinct the temporary caretaker of the brown pitbull mix until its owner can be identified, police said.

The dog was found walking by itself in Crown Heights on Tuesday when a neighbor took pity on the pup and brought him to an officer patrolling nearby. It wasn't immediately clear what street he was found on.

The policeman brought the dog to the 77th Precinct station house where he will remain until officers bring him to a local ASPCA shelter to be checked for a microchip. In the meantime, the precinct tweeted a photo of the dog, asking “#Crownheights anyone missing a dog?”

Staff from the precinct said the dog is in good condition and is wearing a collar, but no identification.

Anyone who has information about the lost dog is encouraged to call the 77th Precinct at 718-735-0611.
