    Austin, a Shih Tzu, finished third in the toy group at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in Madison Square Garden in New York, Monday, Feb. 15, 2010.

    Milford police are on the odd case of trying to track down an animal control officer impersonator.

    A woman made up a complaint about a Milford resident’s four dogs and was able to get into the Warner Street residence on the afternoon of March 5, despite her lack of identification proving that she’s the dog police, cops say.

    The homeowner invited the woman into the house, and the woman stayed there for about half an hour, asking about the falsely accused dogs.

    It was only after the woman left that the resident called the Milford Animal Control Office and learned that no one complained about the dogs and no animal control officer had been sent to the house.

    Nor did the woman’s description match anyone who works in the office.

    On March 24m she reported the incident. Police ask anyone with information to call Detective Kopazna at (203) 783-4732 or (203) 877-1465.
