I went to take care of the horses and saw this dog, hes fixed, Very sweet. We live by a Big lake My husband thinks maybe someone lost him on there vacation. We nick named him Jeff. You can tell he is not hurting for weight, He has a green collar but NO TAGS! He is too sweet to be a dumped dog!
We put an ad in the paper to see if we can find the owner BUT.... What if the owners live out of town? Any recomendations?!?!?!?
I'd watch for signs for lost pets, and maybe take him to campgrounds or hotels in the area to see if he looks familiar to anyone and let the campground and hotel managers know you found a dog and leave your number with them in case anyone asks them. Maybe put up signs of your own.
I have seen alot of them with two blue eyes and lots of white. A breeder in Austin bred for that exact white gene with blue eyes. Eventually most of his pups would turn up deaf because he bred the gene too much.

My husband and I spent the night going to all the campgrounds and rv parks and posted flyers, We saw our local sheriff in town, we gave him a flyer with the picture and he was going to post a flyer in his office and also take it to the court house in case someone calls.
For now (Jeff) Is sleeping peaceful with a full belly, and alot of love!
P.S.Ben (our Sheriff) comes from Louisiana and thinks he Is a Catahoula.
Unfortunately, it's how we have ended up with some of our dogs...People know that we do rescue and have a lot of dogs so it has become a convenient spot to dump them on our driveway. We casme home one day to find one tied to the fence with a note attached that the dog was too much trouble to take care of.. clipped on his colar was a ten dollar bill...It drives me crazy...but I just spay or neuter, obedience train, housebreak and then find a forever home when at all possible.. Good luck!!
He's a catahoula or catahoula mix. There's a good deal of variation within the breed, so it can be hard to tell the mixes from the purebreds. The breed originated in Louisiana and remains very popular there. Your local sheriff can probably pick them out in his sleep. :)
I'd suggest having him scanned for a microchip if you haven't already done so.
he does look like he has been well cared for. maybe got away from someone. what pretty eyes. maybe you could notify the local vets that you have found him. or place a found ad in the paper. maybe even put up some flyers. he looks like a sweet natured guy.
