    Our Humane Society? keeps dogs for 1 week, sometimes. If not adopted out or claimed they are put down. Doesn't seem very humane to me. We sometimes get dropped off pets here. People love puppies, then discover they require food and care.

    I think the lost pup is fitting in. He and Charlie are getting along quite well as if he and Charlie was best buds. After chasing each other, Charlie allowed the pup to drink water first. DH wen around neighborhood again, ringing doorbells, and asking people. So far no one is claiming him or has ever seen the pup before.

    I think he has Border Collie in him. I do not think he is full blood but looks to me as a Border Collie mix. They are wonderful dogs and you will be hard press to find a smarter dog then a BC. Wishing you and the stray the very best he sure looks cute and smart

It would be helpful if you can see f the little guy has a microchip. This can be done free of charge at any vets office, and animal care & control. During the hours that those 2 are closed, an emergency vet hospital will check it free of charge.

    He is cute!!!!
    That is pretty much across the board with Animals Controls and Humane Societies. Just give them a call, or through their website, with his description (weight, collar, fur, etc.) or even a picture. Call both animal control and the humane society, and any vet offices near by. If he lives anywhere close, you might get someone who knows who he is. !?!?!? Ask me how I know all of this?!!?!?!?! Good luck, although if he is getting along with yours, you may end up keeping him if no one picks him up. Who knows, he might be your Angel Unawares. You never know.

    Rescued Boxers are adoptable love. Please consider a homeless/rescued pet when adding to your family.

    Have you posted Lost Dog signs? Often dogs wander (run) miles from their home, so he might not belong to anyone in your neighbors . If the people are looking for him, they will be calling shelters, vets, and animal control. He looks like a mix of Shepherd (face coloring) , boxer (head shape, body color) and terrier (small feet) but that's just a wild guess. I hope you find his family or that he finds a new family with you:0) We tried keeping a second dog who needed us (she was 14 years old and her owner had died, the retired daughter couldn't keep her). We had Brownie for 7 months until Valentine's Day of last year when I had no choice but to put her down because she was failing miserably and my hubby was in the hospital with life-threatening issues. Our golden (a rescue dog) didn't like playing second fiddle; his normally good behavior became a problem for 7 months and showed me that not all dogs who are great alone can give up their throne.

    Here's praying that signs work wonders. LOL

    Oops! Totally forget what I said in the ID of the breed. I was looking at the first picture of Charile (the aerial view where his face doesn't look as much pit as boxer/shep to me). Hahaha. Little red dog looks like it could be an Aussie/border/setter mix. Aussie eyes, border body/face, setter or red golden retriever coloring. Definitely a herding breed, all high energy, so I'll bet dollars to donuts he has run from quite a distance. Those dogs seem to know no bounds. We had a border once run 3 miles away and was taken to animal control a half hour away. She was missing for an agonizing 3 days!

    I'm glad to hear new boy is fitting in well so far, but I know that breed needs a LOT of attention, work to stay busy or else their intelligence drives them nuts. Our next door neighbor has 2 Aussies and a border. The border never shuts up. I hope your newcomer behaves more like a quiet collie or shepherd.

    We have posted signs for dog found. If someone calls we will ask for description. To or row will call around to various animal control offices they are the only ones that manage shelters. DH will bring him to a vet tomorrow and verify if there is a chip. He thinks the dog was abandoned. The county has a high rate of puppy mills and breeders for dog fights - it's quite common for people to abandon dogs on the highway or in a neighborhood away from the mill. Very sad. The new pup does not bark at all. Even when he and Charlie chase each other around the yard.

    Well, I would have a hard time NOT keeping such a dog. He's smart, quiet, gets along with your dog, apparently healthy, and homeless. Keep us posted!

    Just today I went to the Worcester Petrockfest. It is a annual function to raise money for shelters, foster care for dogs and hopefully provide adoptions for loving dogs needing homes. There are so many! It is heartbreaking. I hope if the pup doesn't get claimed that you might be able to provide a forever home . He looks like a beautiful pup

    we have decided that if we can not locate the owner then we will keep him. He is a very good puppy although don't think he's 100% house trained. Scooped him up just in the nick of time as he was ready to lift his leg in the living room. Luckily, we have an outdoor dog house that came with the house that he can use for tonight.
