The bird is small most likely called a backyard feeder.

White feathered breast, brownish/gray wings with the some of the tips of it's wings are bright red. The head is brown with a short pointed beak. There is a black mask that looks attached to the beak and goes across the eye. The two sides of the mask don't touch on the back of the head.
Has short black legs, the legs and feet look very small in diameter.

My dog had this bird when I came home from work yesterday and I don't know what it is. If you can help me maybe I can keep the dog and birds of this type separate.

Hi Debbie! Your description sounds like a Waxwing, either a Bohemian Waxwing or a Cedar Waxwing.
