    Guess what followed my dog home?

    While my DH was walking our rescue dog, Charlie ( rhodesian ridgeback and pitbull mix) both came across a puppy ( any guess?) who followed them home.
    Puppy has a collar but not tags. Once home, we leashed the puppy and walked around the neighborhood making inquiries to each person we met and rang the door bell of a home where he was found. No one answered despite 3 cars in the driveway- maybe the home owners thought we were selling something.
    Right now, the puppy is enjoying himself in our backyard. Quiet as a church mouse.
    I have no idea what mix he is , maybe someone on the board does. He is smart as a whip.
    We have to make a decision- call animal control and bring him to the pound or keep him for a few days and see if we can locate owner by posting info. I hate to think of him being in a cage but just don't know if he will fit in. Oh well, our rescue dog paid it forward.

    In our city, if you find a lost pet, animal care & control will give you the option of keeping the animal during the time that the animal is deemed a lost pet (3 business days). After 3 days if no one claims the animal, ACC will evaluate it to see if it is adoptable or gives you the option of keeping it if you choose. 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!!!!

    The little guy hasn't been fixed nor can we find an indication of a chip. My DH thinks the puppy was abandoned, which is a common practice in the city I live in. My DH is retired and is home all day. He states he has never seen this puppy in the neigh hood on his x5 daily walks.
    I think we'll keep him overnight and call animal control in the morning and see if anyone called in a lost dog. The animal service division is only open 4 days a week where we live. If there is an animal emergency then we have to call the police. He is not an emergency at this time.

    Oh a cute dog followed me on my walk home from high school. My Mother looked in the lost and found ads and it turned out he belonged to someone a few streets away. he was used to being on a leash and walked ahead of me all the way home. also he was only used for stud services. not a pet. I still wish we had kept him!
