Looks like a Russian to me found just off Deadham st before the cemetery/ across from the athletic field at around 2:30. He had a small rock/bark irritating his one eye otherwise very healthy. Good sized little tort. I don't have a car(not from here) so I passed him off to someone and they assured me they would take him straight to an animal shelter.

Hi, this looks very similar to Rolo who was lost in June 2017 in CT. I know it is a long shot, but I am still looking for her. She is a 24 year old female Russian. Shell length was about 7-8 inches. She is in my profile pic and I will attach some more. I know shell patterns can slowly change over time so it may be her! Her shell was starting to get some more darker coloration before I lost her.
